NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - A ambulance flipped onto its side Thursday morning on Interstate 64. Trooper Tim Brown with Virginia State Police said the accident happened at 5:53 a.m. in the eastbound lanes near Fort Eustis Boulevard.
Trooper Brown said the ambulance was on its side, on the right shoulder. He said there were no patients in the vehicle, just the passenger and driver.
Trooper Brown said they were both wearing seatbelts, and neither sustained life-threatening injuries. They were taken to Riverside Regional Hospital, and are expected to be treated and released.
The ambulance belongs to a private medical transportation company.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but Trooper Brown said the ambulance either had to swerve or hit a bump. Because it was top-heavy, the ambulance flipped onto its side.
