BROOKLYN - Two people were injured earlier today when an ambulance crashed into an appliance store on Lafayette Avenue.

The ambulance and the car collided, sending the ambulance head-first into a store. Neighbors say no one was in the store at the time.

The two paramedics suffered minor injuries, according to police. They say one was taken to Woodhull Hospital and the other was taken to Kings County Hospital.
