A mother and child are recovering from injuries they suffered when their car struck an ambulance at Sangamon and Dirksen Friday afternoon.
Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson says the ambulance was westbound on Sangamon with lights and sirens on, and had stopped for a red light before proceeding into the intersection. The mother and child were in a northbound vehicle that hit the ambulance, pushing it into a third car.
Williamson says the woman and her child were taken to the hospital, but their injuries are not life-threatening. And the patient being transported in the ambulance will also be OK, according to the sheriff.
