ANDERSON — A local resident suffered serious injuries when he rode a bicycle into the path of an ambulance on an emergency run.
The accident happened about 12:28 p.m. Friday on Eighth Street just west of Madison Avenue.
The Anderson Fatal Crash team is investigating the accident, which sent David Britton, 58, to Ascension St. Vincent Hospital in Anderson. He was then flown to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis.
According to police reports, Cody Riddle, 30, was driving Anderson Fire Department Medic 1 on an emergency call and collided with Britton.
Britton struck the left side of the ambulance shortly after entering the intersection. Britton was thrown underneath the left rear wheel of the ambulance.
Preliminary indications are that Medic 1 was operating with emergency lights and siren when it entered the intersection. Britton was reportedly riding northbound in the wrong lane and his lane had a red light at the intersection.
A bystander at the scene said she was sitting in her car in the Village Pantry parking lot and heard the sirens.
