MERIDIAN —     An ambulance was badly damaged in an accident downtown Saturday afternoon.

    Clayton Cobler, director of Metro Ambulance Service, said the accident happened around 3 p.m. on Saturday at the intersection of Eighth Street and 23rd Avenue.

    The ambulance was headed north on Eighth on its way to a call in Collinsville, when it collided with a car on 23rd Avenue.
