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

Witnesses say two ambulances drove through the light on Lewis Avenue. Officials say a car driving down Lafayette saw the first one, but was not aware the second one was right behind it.

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.
