The number of reported personal injury road accidents involving at least one ambulance in Great Britain in each of the last three years for which figures are available is given in the following table:

Number of accidents
2007 304
2008 260
2009 288

It is not possible to identify emergency response ambulances as the data are based on a "body type" of vehicles involved and therefore all types of ambulances are included in the data table.
