Ambulance crashes while transporting unstable patient - Michigan

     

Friday, February 1, 2013 By John Counts

An ambulance that was transporting an unstable patient to the University of Michigan Hospital got into a traffic accident in downtown Ann Arbor Thursday morning, officials said.



Joyce Williams, spokeswoman for Huron Valley Ambulances, said one of their vehicles got into a crash at the intersection of East Huron and State streets just before 9 a.m.

HVA had initially responded to a call of a pedestrian being struck at Wagner and Miller roads at 8:53 a.m., Williams said.

“We were transporting that person emergent because they were unstable,” she added.

The ambulance then got into the accident as it was making its way through Ann Arbor toward U-M Hospital with the patient. The ambulance was unable to proceed to the hospital with the patient.

“We called another ambulance to continue the transport,” Williams said.

The second ambulance arrived at 8:58 a.m. and took the pedestrian who was struck to the hospital. There was no additional information about what happened with the patient.

Neither the HVA paramedics nor the driver of the car involved in the crash were injured. Williams did not have any other details about the accident.


Snowy weather conditions and icy roads played a part in both incidents, Williams said.
