Speeding Fire Truck Hits Ambulance, Killing Patient

A ladder truck racing to a building fire crashed into an ambulance carrying a heart attack victim early Thursday morning in Brooklyn, killing the patient and critically injuring his sister, who was riding with him to the hospital.

Six firefighters and two emergency service workers were also injured in the accident and were in stable condition at a hospital. Two people in another car were also hurt when the ambulance careened into it.

The crash happened at around 1 a.m. at the intersection at Myrtle and Throop Avenues in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, a time when the streets were relatively empty and quiet, police and fire officials said.
