MO: Ambulance crashes carrying wounded hunter

April 29, 2010

A two-vehicle crash yesterday afternoon at the intersection of Old 63 and Stadium Boulevard involved an ambulance from Scotland County that had been taking a gunshot victim to the hospital.

Fire crews responded to the accident just after 1 p.m. and found a two-door Honda in the roadway with heavy front-end damage and the Scotland County Hospital ambulance down an embankment on the north side of Stadium, according to a news release from the fire department.

The driver of the Honda was taken to Boone Hospital Center with minor injuries, and the ambulance's occupants were not injured in the crash. However, the victim of a gunshot wound from a hunting accident was in the ambulance and was taken to University Hospital by a Boone Hospital ambulance.

The ambulance from Scotland County, which is in northeast Missouri, had its emergency lights and siren on at the time of the accident, the news release said.
