Most people keep are sensible enough to stay out of the way when they hear an ambulance coming, but it is good that the lady survived the incident.
Maybe she was using head phones as many cyclists and joggers do when training.
I must say that if you are destined to be hit by a vehicle then the best thing to hit is an ambulance I think.
