Three injured in ambulance collision

| 04/08/2008


Two medics and a driver were injured yesterday morning, 3 August, after a car and an ambulance collided on Shamrock Road. The 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a number of calls from people reporting the crash at 10:00 am.  The two medics in the ambulance and the driver of a Silver Buick Regal were injured and all three were taken to hospital for treatment but the patient in the ambulance was unhurt in the collision.



It would appear that the ambulance had been heading west on Shamrock Road with lights and sirens on when the vehicles collided in the vicinity of the Savannah Texaco gas station, or Tall Tree, after which the ambulance crashed into a vacant building. The traffic management unit is asking anyone who witnessed the crash who has not yet spoken with a police officer to contact Sergeant Lenford Butler on 946-6254.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
