There was no patient on board at the time of the accident. 

It is also noted that the sole occupant of the other vehicle involved suffered no injuries, refused transportation and signed a release form, Jn Baptiste said.

He reported that in a separate incident on Tuesday a utility vehicle belonging to the fire service  was involved in a front/side on collision at Cul-De-Sac, near the entrance to Valley Storage with a Subaru Impreza car. 

Jn Baptiste noted that Fire Service personnel responding to the incident assessed and treated three of the four individuals involved.

They were both transported to the OKEU Hospital.

“The passenger of the Subaru Impreza was also transported to the OKEU Hospital, while the driver refused medical attention or transportation and subsequently signed a release form,” Jn Baptiste said in a statement to the media.

He noted that  all of the vehicles sustained significant damage due to the collisions which are currently being investigated by the police.
