The New York Daily News reported that a hit-and-run driver fleeing from the scene of an accident involving an ambulance Monday wrecked his car again by crashing into a light pole less than a mile away in Brooklyn.
According to officials from the New York City Police Department, the driver, a man from Queens 34 years of age, was arguing with another driver and got distracted, which caused him to strike an ambulance belonging to the New York City Fire Department at the intersection of Boerum Street and White Street in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn around 9:00 a.m. on Sunday morning.

While no one was injured in the incident and damage was minor, the driver sped off, fleeing the consequences of the wreck, but less than a mile away collided with a light pole at the intersection of Hart St. and Irving Ave in the neighborhood of Bushwick. The accident knocked over and destroyed the pole as well as causing severe damage to the gray SUV he was driving.
Police took him into custody at the site of the second accident and his license was suspended Monday in a court appearance due to the suspect running two red lights and driving recklessly in the incident.
