Magnolia police say the crash on Route 30 occurred shortly after 5 a.m. Monday. They say a preliminary investigation found the car was westbound when it crossed the double yellow line and slid sideways into the front of the eastbound ambulance.

The car had been reported stolen to Sayreville police on Monday. The driver was the only person in the vehicle, and his name has not been released.

The two people in the ambulance were treated for undisclosed injuries and released later Monday. There were no patients in the ambulance and it was not responding to an emergency call at the time the crash occurred.
