INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An SUV and an ambulance collided Tuesday morning near downtown.

It happened in the westbound lanes of Interstate 70 near the Interstate 65 north split.

Dispatchers with Indiana State Police said there was a patient on board the ambulance at the time of the crash. Police say another ambulance was called to the scene, but it’s unknown if that was to continue the patient onto the hospital from the original medical run, or if that patient was injured in the crash.

ISP dispatch says the driver of the SUV was not hurt. Medics on board the ambulance were uninjured as well.

At one point, the right three lanes of westbound I-70 were closed because of the crash. Around 9:30 a.m. only two lanes remained closed near mile 83.5. Police said they were working to re-open all lanes as soon as possible. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
