When you have an accident, you know to call emergency services for help. When you do that, ambulances with emergency medical technicians will come to you, whether you're suffering from a health issue at home or in a car accident in the city.
When these EMTs are driving to you, lights and sirens let others know they're on their way. When drivers hear these sirens or see the lights flashing, they should pull over and get out of the way to abide by the laws for emergency vehicles. If they don't or they continue on, an accident like this one could happen. In the tragic accident in New Jersey, a young woman lost her life after the vehicle she was in was struck and forced onto its side.
