Tarrytown, NY — A paramedic and a tow truck driver were injured in an accident after a vehicle slammed into the rear-end of an ambulance that was stopped alongside the New York Thruway Friday night, February 8, 2013. The automobile accident occurred 8:51 p.m. near the interchange of I-87 and 287 in Tarrytown, Patch.com reported.
