An ambulance was involved in a crash Wednesday morning.

It had its lights and sirens going at the time.

Halifax Regional Police say as it passed through the intersection of Connaught Avenue and Almon Street at around 11:15 a.m., it was hit by a car.

The driver of the car was taken to hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. 

The 71-year-old woman was also issued a summary offence ticket for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle. 

"Police remind motorists to slow down, move over and yield the right of way when they see an emergency vehicle with its lights flashing," said HRP in a news release.
