A Gordon County ambulance was involved in the four-car crash that caused major traffic delays along Interstate 75 northbound Sunday afternoon in Catoosa County, Georgia, just south of Ringgold.

Eight injuries were reported, Georgia State Patrol spokesman Sgt. First Class Darren Gleaton said. All were minor injuries and no one was taken to the hospital as a result of the crash.

The ambulance was transporting a non-emergency patient from Gordon County to a Chattanooga hospital when traffic began to slow. The ambulance hit one vehicle, which set off a domino effect that affected two other vehicles, authorities said.

The ambulance driver received a citation for following too close. Gleaton said the ambulance did not have emergency lights or siren on.
