At least one injured in ambulance accident

April 29, 2012


An ambulance driver, en route to an emergency call on Interstate 70, hydroplaned and lost control of the vehicle in a one-vehicle accident at noon Sunday. The ambulance struck an inside barrier wall head on.

One of the passengers, a 41-year-old Lawrence man, was injured and taken by a private vehicle to Cushing Memorial Hospital in Leavenworth. The driver, a 23-year-old Merriam man, and the third passenger, a 40-year-old woman from Overland Park, were also taken to Cushing Memorial Hospital for possible injuries.

If it wouldn't be too much trouble, perhaps the LJW staff could investigate a wee bit more and determine to which ambulance service or fire department the ambulance belonged to. If it was LDCFM, the story is sorely lacking on details.

Yes, I believe it goes all the way back to Bush Sr., skips Clinton, and comes back to Bush Jr. At least in Larryville!

Why are people from Kansas City driving our ambulances. We need to outsource those jobs too? What the hell is Obama doing with our tax dollars. He should keep jobs in Lawrence and save lives.
