WASHINGTON — The D.C. police officer who waited 20 minutes for an ambulance after he was struck by an alleged drunk driver last year says he's not angry at the D.C. Fire Department.

The initial call for a pedestrian down March 5 came at 6:34 p.m. A D.C. fire engine with a paramedic on board arrived at 6:42 p.m., but no D.C. ambulances were available, according to D.C. Fire & EMS records.

Ten minutes later, a Prince George's County ambulance arrived, and at 7:03 p.m., that ambulance took D.C. police officer Sean Hickman to MedStar Washington Hospital Center with a crushed leg.
