Two paramedics and a young man have been taken to hospital after a car smashed into an ambulance as it drove to an emergency in Melbourne's outer south-east.
Two paramedics were in the ambulance, which had its lights and sirens on, as it drove south on the Nepean Highway at Frankston South at 10.50pm on Wednesday, when a car driving in the opposite direction mounted a median strip and collided with the ambulance, a police spokeswoman said.
The ambulance was extensively damaged but the paramedics had minor injuries. The force of the collision split the car in two.

A spokesman for Ambulance Victoria said the paramedics got out and helped the 21-year-old Seaford man driving the other car.
All three people were taken to Frankston Hospital in a stable condition.
Police are expected to speak with the driver of the car.
Another ambulance was called to replace the one involved in the smash to attend their original job in Mount Martha.
On Thursday morning, a spokeswoman for the Frankston Hospital said the driver was in a stable condition and awaiting surgery. She did not have any information about the two paramedics.
