Crash video: Woman at stop sign thought ambulance would also stop

She pulled out from the four-way stop and the ambulance, with lights and sirens running, plowed into her and flipped over

By EMS1 Staff

KOHLER, Wis. — A woman injured in a collision with an ambulance pulled out from a four-way stop because she thought the ambulance coming toward her would also stop.

Video footage shows her pausing at a four-way intersection, and then continuing into the road, where an ambulance slams into the passenger side of her car, pushes it down the street, and rolls over.

She was airlifted to a local hospital. A paramedic sustained minor injuries and was treated and released, sheboyganpress.com reports. 

The ambulance had lights and sirens activated on the way to a medical call, but the woman thought it would stop at the intersection, according to an accident report released by the Kohler Police Department.

The woman, whose information was redacted from the report, was cited for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle. The driver of the ambulance was also cited for failing to operate safely as an emergency vehicle operator.
