One Dead, EMS Workers Injured in Kentucky Ambulance Crash

A person was killed and two EMS workers were injured in a crash involving an ambulance Monday evening in Louisville, Kentucky.

WAVE reported (http://bit.ly/1quxeUW) that at 6:27 p.m. a Louisville Metro  ambulance was traveling with lights and sirens on a medical run of a report of a man down when the ambulance crashed into a blue Geo Metro.

The ambulance then lost control and slammed into a construction crane near the scene; the two EMS workers were trapped in the vehicle’s cab.

Firefighters used a piece of construction equipment to extricate the EMS workers from the ambulance and transported them to an area hospital. The driver of the Geo Metro was pronounced dead at the scene.

The emergency call turned out not to be a real emergency and was cancelled shortly after the accident occurred.
