Gurney with dead body flies out of coroner's van on busy street
The driver of the transport vehicle returned to make the transport complete, with the help of a bystander
BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. — Bucks County officials are investigating how a gurney, with what appeared to be a deceased person on it, fell out of a coroner’s vehicle and ended up on busy Street Road Friday afternoon.
County spokesman Chris Edwards confirmed there is an investigation into the incident, which happened in Lower Southampton around noon yesterday. Jerry Bradley was waiting at the traffic light coming out of the shopping center that holds a Panera Bread and Starbucks when he saw the gurney come out of the green county-owned vehicle and end up in the lane of travel.
“At first I thought someone was pulling a prank, but traffic was just driving around,” Bradley told LevittownNow.com Saturday morning. Bradley said it appeared there was a body in a bag and wrapped in a sheet strapped to the gurney. A photo snapped by the man appears to show just that.
