Car crash involved occupied ambulance in Milaca

On Behalf of | Oct 25, 2021 | Uncategorized

If there is one thing that most of us can agree on, it is that driving is dangerous. Indeed, statistically, unless we work in a high-risk job, it is the most dangerous act that we engage in, and we do it every day. However, one place that we likely do not expect to be involved in an auto accident is while in an ambulance, but that seems to be one unfortunate resident experienced in Milaca.

The ambulance-vehicle accident

According to the Mille Lacs County Sheriff’s Office, the ambulance-vehicle accident occurred in Milaca last Sunday around 7:15 p.m. The vehicles involved included a passenger vehicle and a North Memorial ambulance, and the crash occurred at the intersection of Central Avenue North and 160th Street.

According to the MLCSO, the North Memorial ambulance was on eastbound 160th Street with its siren and lights activated. When it crossed the intersection on Central Avenue North, it was impacted by the passenger vehicle traveling northbound.

After the crash

The car driver was taken to the St. Could Hospital, and ambulance driver and EMT were taken to the Princeton Hospital. The patent was airlifted from the accident scene to the St. Cloud Hospital by North Memorial Air Care. The current condition of everyone involved in the car crash is still unknown, and the Minnesota State Patrol is still under investigation.

What to do after a crash

This story is obviously scary for our Saint Cloud, Minnesota, readers. After all, when an ambulance picks us up, we do not expect to have to be airlifted because that vehicle is in a crash. But, not matter the circumstances, know that car accident victims can always sue negligent drivers through a personal injury lawsuit.
