A Carlstadt ambulance transporting a patient struck the mirror of a pickup truck Wednesday afternoon in Hasbrouck Heights, requiring another rig.

The 41-year-old Maywood driver of a Ford F-250 was headed north on Terrace Avenue near Kipp Avenue when the ambulance came up behind shortly before 4:30 p.m., Detective Lt. Michael Colaneri Jr. said.

The Ford, which has large mirrors, “didn’t pull over completely,” Colaneri said.

The patient, who was being transported to the hospital for a shoulder injury, was OK, as was the 20-year-old ambulance driver, the lieutenant said.

A 23-year-old EMT in back of the rig required treatment for a minor elbow injury, he said.

A Hasbrouck Heights ambulance took the patient and EMT to Hackensack University Medical Center, Colaneri said.

No tows were required, he said.
