CHP Investigates Collision Involving Ambulance
Sonora, CA — CHP says an accident involving an ambulance in Sonora yesterday resulted only in minor injuries.
Police say the accident happened at about 5:00 in the afternoon when the Mercy Medical ambulance was traveling down the exit ramp from highway 108 toward the stop-light on Mono Way with its emergency lights and siren on.
A report indicates that 47-year-old Rommel Que of Modesto was driving a GMC Yukon eastbound on Mono Way toward the intersection.
Police say that even though Que had the green light he apparently didn´t see the ambulance, which had stopped just prior to entering the intersection.
Both drivers had minor injuries and the patient being transported in the ambulance was taken to Sonora Regional Medical Center for treatment of unrelated injuries.
