TURNER — An ambulance rear-ended a pickup truck at a Route 4 traffic light at the intersection of Snell Hill Road on Sunday afternoon, Androscoggin County Sheriff Eric Samson said Monday.

The Med-Care ambulance, based in Mexico, was taking a patient to Lewiston when it rear-ended the 2016 Ford F-150 pickup truck, which was stopped at a red light. The pickup then rear-ended a 1999 Jeep Wrangler, which was also stopped at the light.

The accident report, which includes the names of those involved, hadn’t been completed Monday, Samson said.

The driver of the ambulance and a passenger were taken by Turner Rescue to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with complaints of neck pain. The patient in the ambulance, who did not suffer injury from the crash, also was taken to the hospital, Samson said.

A third person, who had been in one of the other vehicles, complained of pain, but wasn’t taken to the hospital, Samson said.

Leaking fluids closed Route 4; two of the vehicles were towed.

No citations were issued, Samson said.

The crash is under investigation.
