2 Ky. medics injured in head-on ambulance collision
The medics suffered serious injuries; the driver of the car that hit the ambulance was pronounced dead at the scene
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — One person was killed and two Louisville Metro EMS workers were seriously injured in a crash involving an ambulance.
The crash became the worst case scenario for emergency crews who were trying to get to one life or death situation only to become a part of another one. "When someone else in the other vehicle is hurt or killed," said EMS Chief of Staff Kristen Miller, "That's a heavy mantle to carry."
According to Louisville Metro police, at 6:27 p.m. Monday the ambulance was traveling with lights and sirens eastbound on River Road, on a medical run of a report of a man down, when the ambulance crashed into a blue Geo Metro turning right onto River Road from Frankfort Avenue.
