ARLINGTON, Wash. (AP) — Arlington Police are investigating after an ambulance went off a road and crashed while transporting a woman to a local hospital.

Granite Falls Fire Chief Jim Haverfield tells The Daily Herald that two Granite Falls firefighters had a patient on board Friday when their ambulance went into a ditch filled with water and also hit some trees.

The firefighters had minor injuries. The female patient was not hurt in the crash. No other vehicles were involved.

The Arlington Fire Department took the firefighters and the woman to the hospital.

Haverfield says the Granite Falls fire department also plans to conduct its own review.
