Pa. ambulance breaks down with baby days after safety investigation
The service is under further scrutiny after an ambulance lost a tire while transporting a sick infant, days after the state took 30 ambulances off the road
PHILADELPHIA — A local ambulance and transportation company already under investigation is now under even more scrutiny after one of its vehicles lost a tire while a sick infant was onboard.
The Keystone Quality Transport ambulance broke down on the Garden State Parkway last Thursday while carrying a sick baby. The child had to be taken by medical chopper to St. Christopher’s Hospital as the ambulance was towed.
The ambulance broke down only a few days after NBC10 first reported Keystone, a medical transport service with locations in Port Richmond, Parkside and Springfield, was under investigation for possible safety violations. Dozens of vehicles and five drivers were taken off the streets.
