Default Chicago ambulance crash c 1960ís?

On page ST 16 of New York Times Feb 11, 2018 there are two photos of an ambulance crash from Chicago from the mid to late 1960ís Iím guessing. I donít have a clue of what these two photos have to do with Calvin Kleinís ad...good for me. But I recognize the phone number (RO 3-6777) on the door of the ambulance as that of Mercy Ambulance Service, which operated on the far northwest side of Chicago in the 1950ís and 60ís. They had beautiful cars, all light blue.
Those were the years when CFD would respond to an ďinhalatorĒ in a home but wouldnít make a removal of the PT from the home...either CPD or private ambulance did that. The owner of Mercy, located on Northwest Highway in the Edison Park neighborhood of Chicago, would get the call and sometimes heíd swing thru the neighborhood to pick up the on-call attendant, whoíd be in uniform and waiting at the curb, and continue to meet CFD at the site. There were some beautiful funeral home ambulances in the city then. All this just FYI.

Brand new '60 M-M Futura at the time! Unusual & cool to see a low top with tunnel lights.

That scene is scary looking, at least to me. I realize there are much worse tragedies that first responders see, but it kind of takes my breath away thinking about it.
