An ambulance responding to an emergency call collided with a car in South Ozone Park on Sunday and ended up crashing into a home.

The accident happened at 11:30 a.m. at the intersection of 109th Avenue and 110th Street, one block north of Rockaway Boulevard and Aqueduct Racetrack.

Police say the ambulance was responded to a call of an unconscious person nearby when it collided with the car at the intersection. The ambulance crashed through a fence, glided across a small lawn and hit the south of the house on the northeast corner of the intersection.

Two EMS workers in the ambulance were taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center with minor injuries. The driver of the vehicle was taken to the same hospital and was listed in serious but stable condition. No one inside the home was hurt and the structure was not seriously damaged in the accident.

The intersection is not a busy one and is located in the heart of a residential area.

Police are still investigating the cause of the accident.
