At about 3:30 a.m. Monday, the Louisville Metro Police Department First Division officers responded to a call of a crash involving a Bullitt County ambulance in the 200 block of East Chestnut Street.

As a result, the EMT that was in the back of the ambulance with a patient was ejected from the back.

The EMT was taken to UofL Hospital with life-threatening injuries. There were no other injuries. The LMPD Traffic Unit is investigating.
