Dash cam video shows bus carrying 15 people slamming into ambulance at Florida intersection
A newly released video shows the moments leading up to a crash involving an ambulance, bus, and pickup truck at a Marion County intersection.
The beginning of the video shows an ambulance approaching the intersection of SW 90th Street and SW 80th Avenue in Ocala around 9 a.m.
As the ambulance crosses the intersection, both a small bus and a pickup truck can be seen crashing into the side of the ambulance near a crosswalk.
The ambulance flips on its side following the crash, while the pickup truck propels forward and the bus comes to a stop near the initial impact.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, 15 people were hospitalized after the crash including two Marion County firefighters, 11 students, a bus driver, and the pickup truck.
Eight of the students were transported as a precaution, officials said.
Marion County Fire Rescue issued a reminder to drivers to "yield to emergency vehicles as our lights and sirens are on," according to the post.
