Three people were slightly injured in the accident involving an ambulance in Haren (Emsland district). The 26-year-old driver misjudged the height of a bridge on Tuesday evening, a police spokesman said. He noticed the corresponding traffic sign too late. When he tried to drive under the bridge, he collided with the roof of the vehicle.

The driver and a 22-year-old paramedic in the car were slightly injured. The 94-year-old patient, who was initially only to be taken to a clinic to have his health checked, suffered minor injuries. The injured were taken to nearby hospitals. The vehicle was towed.
