HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A crash between an ambulance and a car Tuesday afternoon at the intersection of 3rd Avenue and 25th Street in East Huntington sent two people to the hospital.

Despite the severity of the crash, both victims escaped serious injuries.

The crash was reported about 2:45 p.m., and the severity of it was caught on surveillance video. It shows a car going north on 25th Street through the intersection of 3rd Avenue. The car drives into the path of a westbound ambulance on 3rd Avenue and is struck in the passenger side.
