One killed in car vs ambulance crash in Alabama

     

Saturday, January 5, 2013  By John Shryock

SELMA, AL (WSFA) - Selma police are investigating the cause of a fatal crash involving a passenger vehicle and an ambulance. The crash occurred on December 31, 2012 around 7:55pm on Highland Avenue near Bell Road.

Selma Police Chief William Riley says preliminary reports show that a Care Ambulance unit on a non-emergency run was traveling east on Highland Avenue when passenger vehicle, traveling west, crossed the center line and struck the ambulance head on.

Chief Riley said the driver, paramedic and patient in the ambulance each received minor injuries. The sole occupant of the passenger vehicle was treated on the scene and transported to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead. 

The chief said the victim's name was being withheld until next-of-kin could be notified. He would confirm the victim's drivers license showed him to be a 26-year-old Plantersville man.

Chief Riley said results from several lab reports were still outstanding. No cause has been determined at this time.
