Five Lynbrook Department volunteers were injured and all have been released from a local hospital as of Thursday after a car collided with an ambulance on Sunrise Highway in Lynbrook Tuesday around 4:40 p.m.
Lynbrook Mayor William Hendrick confirmed the accident and injuries to a large crowd at the Chamber of Commerce meeting at The Bristal in Lynbrook Tuesday night.
The volunteers injured, as young as 18 years old, were on their way back from an accident when a Hyundai failed to stop at the intersection on Vincent Avenue and crashed into them, Hendrick said.
"Most of these volunteers have family in the fire department," Hendrick said.
The injuries sustained ranged from bruises to a neck injury and a separated shoulder, Hendrick said.
Lynbrook Fire Chief Michael Hynes confirmed on Thursday that all injured volunteers have been released from the hospital, and that the accident is currently under investigation.
