An ambulance responding to an emergency on Monday night collided with an SUV in Auburn.

The ambulance, driven by Auburn firefighter Mark Tripp, was driving along Center Street with its emergency lights and sirens activated about 8 p.m. when it collided with a 2008 Dodge Durango driven by Edwards Jones, 72, of Wilton, according to the Auburn Police Department.

At the time of the collision, Jones was making a left turn onto Center Street from a driveway and failed to yield to the ambulance, according to Auburn police.

Neither the Tripp nor his passenger in the ambulance, Lt. Stephen Coombs, were injured in the crash.
