ambulance(AP) — Authorities say a private ambulance with an 88-year-old patient inside has been involved in a crash in Lincoln, though injuries are not life-threatening.

The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office says a Midwest Medical Transport Co. ambulance was taking the patient from a hospital to her home Thursday when the crash occurred on a part of Nebraska Highway 2. The ambulance driver encountered slick roads and lost control of the vehicle.

The ambulance ended up on its side, and traffic was detoured for about an hour. The three people in the ambulance were taken to a hospital with minor injuries, and they have been released.
