DENVER — Two paramedics and an EMT were injured this morning when their ambulance — siren and lights activated — rolled over on West Evans Avenue in Denver.
The ambulance, from Denver Health, was in the wrong lane when it rolled over, Denver Fire spokesman Alex Paez said.

It tried to pass a lumber truck that was in a center lane making a left-hand turn, he said. The two vehicles collided.
"They kind of put themselves in harm's way when they go in opposite lanes," Paez said. "We do that sometimes when the lane we're traveling in is full, because cars aren't getting out of the way or there's construction in the lane."
The trio was taken to Denver Health Medical Center. Paez didn't know the extent of injuries, but he said they didn't seem to be serious.
The ambulance was on an emergency run, but hadn't yet picked up the patient, Paez said.
Denver police spokesman John White said investigators are talking to witnesses to try to determine the cause of the accident that happened about 9:30 a.m.
