DUMFRIES, Va. – A rescue squad was involved in a crash with an SUV in Dumfries.

The crash occurred about 3:30 p.m. Saturday on U.S. 1, and it involved the SUV and an ambulance from the Dumfries-Triangle Rescue Squad from Station 23 in River Oaks. The two vehicles collided at the intersection of U.S. 1 and Possum Point Road, according to witnesses.

The driver of the SUV ambulance was taken to a local hospital and treated for injuries that did not appear to be life threatening. The ambulance was responding to another crash when the accident occurred, said Dumfries Triangle Rescue Squad Assistant Chief Steven B. Chasin.

Traffic on U.S. 1 north was diverted around the crash scene for about an hour while police investigated the accident. It’s unclear who was at fault and if charges were filed in the case.
