Semi-truck hits ambulance; one person killed

Some vehicles by their very nature seem to be immune from traffic accidents. One obvious category is ambulances. They seem to rarely be involved in collisions causing injury. Unfortunately, that rule was disproved in an accident near Enon, Ohio, when a semi-trailer truck struck an ambulance on I-70.

The ambulance-truck accident occurred shortly after 1:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-70. According to authorities, an ambulance from Mad River Township was responding to a call when it was struck by a semi-truck. Police also say that an SUV was involved, but no details were released. Police also said that excessive speed appears to have been a factor in the crash.

The semi-truck struck the guardrail and then collided with the front of the ambulance. The semi-truck ran off the freeway. The driver of the semi-truck, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected and was struck by the semi-truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the semi-truck suffered back injuries, but the authorities have not released any information about his condition. Medics were treating a patient in the ambulance when the collision occurred, but no information is available about the physical condition of that person.

The first reports from authorities seem to indicate that the driver of the semi-truck was at fault for the collision. Other parties may be the truck's owner or lessor, if they failed to properly maintain the truck. The person riding in the semi-truck may even have a claim, unless his presence in the truck was forbidden. Anyone who has been injured or lost a loved one in a similar accident may need to get more information about personal injury legal options.
