INDIANAPOLIS — A paramedic received minor injuries after a crash involving an ambulance and semi on the south side of downtown Indianapolis Wednesday morning.

According to police, the ambulance went through a red light. It did not have its lights on.

The impact forced the ambulance on its side.

Police say the semi driver told them they could not see the ambulance due to trees on the side of the road.

The semi driver was not hurt.
