Connecticut state police said the accident happened near Punch Brook Road and Case Road around 9:20 a.m.
State police said that there were minor injures. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
According to Fox CT reporter Rebecca Stewart, the car was turning left into the Department of Environmental Fish Hatchery and the ambulance was heading to a call. The ambulance clipped the rear of the car. It is unclear if the ambulance had its lights and siren on at the time.
Burlington Fire Chief Mike Boucher said the driver of the car car was injured. An ambulance from Canton was called to bring the driver of the car to the hospital because the town's second ambulance continued on to the first ambulance's original call. Boucher said the call required lights and sirens. Emergency medical personnel aboard the ambulance were not injured, but the vehicle suffered mechanical damage.
