A parked ambulance rolled forward and rear-ended a station wagon in Oyama, Tochigi Prefecture, injuring a 28-year-old man.

The wagon, with nine people inside — including five children aged 7 or younger — was parked 10 meters from the ambulance. The injured man was the driver of the station wagon. When the accident happened, he was outside the car and tried to stop the ambulance.
