COEUR D’ALENE – On Thursday June 16, 2022 Kamiah Fire-Rescue was requested by an area hospital for a Paramedic-level transfer of a patient to Kootenai Hospital in Coeur d’Alene.
While the patient was being transported, at around 12:51 a.m. on June 17, the driver of a different vehicle ran a stop sign and a flashing red street light at the intersection of US95/Walnut and Lincoln Way and struck the front of the Kamiah Fire-Rescue Ambulance (Medic 22).
The accident caused moderate damage to the front of the ambulance.
According to a report from KFR, the vehicle appeared to look like a Subaru, bluish in color. The vehicle will likely have a considerable damage on the vehicle’s passenger side and will be missing the passenger side mirror.
The patient and KFR crew did not receive any injuries from the accident and all persons at the time of the crash were wearing their safety belts.
Anyone in the Coeur d’Alene area who sees a vehicle matching the description or may have additional information, is asked to please contact the Coeur d’ Alene Police Department.
KFR would like to thank the police department for their assistance.
