The California Highway Patrol says a driver traveling at an unsafe speed in an emergency incident zone was side-swiped by an ambulance early Wednesday morning.
CHP says around 2:55 a.m., the American Medical Response (AMR) ambulance was responding to an overturned vehicle on Highway 101 South, just north of Santa Maria Way.
Officials say the ambulance changed lanes and did not have its emergency lights activated when it side-swiped the Dodge Stratus.
They say a CHP patrol car was on the side of the highway with its emergency lights activated, warning drivers of the overturned vehicle ahead.
The 19-year-old driver controlled her car and pulled over.
No one was hurt.
The incident is still under investigation, but officials say the driver of the Dodge was traveling at unsafe speeds.
CHP says alcohol and drugs were not a factor in the collision.
