The patient, who was being taken to hospital for dialysis,  was travelling in the front of the vehicle and was helped out by firemen after the windscreen was removed. He suffered a blow to the chest. 

Earlier this week a woman was seriously injured after she fell into the road from the back of an ambulance that was travelling at speed on a motorway in Spain.
