Following a collision between an automobile and a Greenport Rescue Squad ambulance on Monday night, one driver was transported to Columbia Memorial Health, according to Hudson police Lt. David Miller. According to Miller, the ambulance was not carrying any patients at the time of the collision.

Irene Byrne, the car’s 72-year-old Claverack resident driver, was just slightly hurt, according to Miller. According to Miller, neither the ambulance’s 28-year-old Hudson driver Connor O’Neill nor his passenger was hurt in the collision.

According to Miller, an examination into the collision showed that Byrne’s car moved out of the Hudson High School parking lot onto Harry Howard Avenue and collided with the ambulance’s passenger side as it was being driven south on Harry Howard.
