Canby crash sends ambulance into power pole - Oregon

     

Saturday, December 22, 2012 Reported by: Faris Tanyos
Email: ftanyos@koin.com

A woman was seriously injured after her car was involved in a collision with an ambulance in Canby Thursday night. 

The accident occurred at about 7 p.m. at the intersection of South Knights Bridge and Barlow roads. Canby Fire District crews responded to find a damaged Honda on the side of the road and a Metro West ambulance that had crashed into a power pole, with fallen power lines lying on and around the ambulance. 

The two paramedics who were in the crashed ambulance were providing medical aid to the driver and only occupant of the Honda, the fire district said. The woman, whose name was not released, was transported by another ambulance to Oregon Health & Science University. She is expected to survive. One of the paramedics was taken to a nearby hospital with possible injuries. 

There were no patients in the ambulance at the time of the incident. The ambulance was returning from an area transport when the accident occurred, and both medics were in the front seat. 

The exact circumstances of the crash were not confirmed. Portland General Electric crews were brought in to monitor and repair the fallen power lines. 

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident.
