As noted in the linked article, vehicle fatality rates are estimated to be up to 4.8 times higher for emergency responders than average vehicle fatality rates nationally. An estimated 6,500 crashes involving ambulances occur each year; 35 percent of which result in injury or fatality to at least 1 occupant of an involved vehicle.

This is further supported by a 2018 report from a leading group of trial lawyers shows that crashes involving  fire trucks, ambulances, and police car are problematic across the U.S.
