An Adair County ambulance with a patient onboard was involved in a serious crash late Monday morning.
It happened shortly after 11 a.m. in Pettis County, about a mile north of Sedalia.
Sgt. Andy Bell with the Missouri State Highway Patrol told KTVO a state trooper had attempted to pull over a pickup truck for a traffic violation, and the driver fled.
During the pursuit, officers say the man ran a stop sign and pulled into the path of an Adair County ambulance that was southbound on Highway 65.
The impact caused the ambulance to overturn onto its side.
Bell said the ambulance personnel and the patient were not injured.
The pickup driver suffered serious injuries when he ejected from his truck.
The highway patrol is still investigating the incident.
UPDATE: The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s online crash report states that the Adair County ambulance involved in Monday morning’s crash outside Sedalia was driven by Robert Brock, 46, of Kirksville.
