BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A teenager is facing charges after running a red light and causing an ambulance to crash into a tree early Saturday in Bridgeport, according to multiple media reports.

The crash happened on North Avenue near Wood Avenue just before 2:30 a.m. when the ambulance veered to avoid colliding with the teen's car, then struck a parked car and a tree, WFSB-TV said.

Two EMTs and a student were onboard; one suffered a broken leg and had to be removed by firefighters, according to WFSB.

The driver of the car, Jose Gonzalez-Miranda of Bridgeport, was charged with evading responsibility, operating without a license and driving through a red light, according to the Connecticut Post.
