IBERVILLE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - An Acadian ambulance was involved in a wreck Friday night while responding to a call in Iberville Parish.

The crash occurred on Hwy. 30 near Hwy. 3115 around 8:50 p.m., St. Gabriel Police chief Kevin Ambeau said.

Two Acadian medics and the driver of a pickup truck were all taken to the hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening. One person had to be extricated from the ambulance.

Ambeau said a power outage likely contributed to the crash. The traffic signals at the intersection were not working at the time. He said the ambulance was responding with lights and sirens, but the pickup truck did not stop at the intersection.
