UPDATE - May 30:Police say Kent Wilson, 52, has been charged with assault, assault causing bodily harm, assault against a peace officer and resisting arrest. Wilson was allegedly driving a vehicle that drifted from the road onto the median multiple times before colliding with the other vehicles involved in the crash. Police say after the crash, he assaulted paramedics at the scene.

Calgary police are investigating after a "combative patient" allegedly sent two paramedics and a police officer to the hospital after a car crash.

Emergency crews responded to a four-car collision on Deerfoot Trail on Monday afternoon at 4 p.m. When first responders arrived on the scene, "they were confronted by a combative man who had been involved in the crash," police said in a release.

Police said it took several paramedics, firefighters and police officers to restrain the patient. They shot him with a stun gun but it had "limited impact." Police don't know why the patient was combative, but he was taken to hospital after being sedated.

One paramedic was seriously injured and was taken to hospital in non-life-threatening condition. Another paramedic and police officer also received minor injuries. Two people who were injured in the collision were also taken to hospital.
