  • Ambulance Rollover

    A Morgan County ambulance was involved in a rollover accident in Lexington Monday

    nighthttp://www.lex18.com/news/ambulance-rolls-in-crash/

    The accident happened around 9:30 p.m. at the intersection of Broadway and New Circle Road. Police say that Rebecca M. Rogers, 27, failed to stop as the ambulance entered the intersection with siren blaring and lights flashing. Witnesses say the ambulance paused at the intersection and then proceeded when the driver apparently thought it was clear. Everyone stopped - except Rogers. The Hyundai Sonata she was driving plowed into the ambulance, causing it to flip.

    "One person didn't stop. I don't know if she didn't hear it or see it or what, but the ambulance went over top. It was so strong it made it flip. It was really fast, really awful," John Slone, a witness, said.

    Callalou Roe, 58, the driver of the ambulance, and a patient inside were both injured. Officials say Roe will be ok, but the patient is in critical condition at UK Hospital. It's unclear whether the patient's condition is a result of the crash, or from a previous condition.

    Charges against Rogers are pending.

    Rollover KY519

    Officials were on the scene in Rowan County Thursday morning after an ambulance overturned in a culvert.

    The accident happened at about 10:45 a.m. On Kentucky 519. The patient in the back of the ambulance, which was from Morgan County, was trapped for short time, but has since been freed. That patient and two EMTs in the ambulance have all been taken to St. Claire's Hospital.

    Officials say the EMT's suffered minor injuries, but there is no word on the extent of the injuries on the patient.

      Clay County

      No serious injuries were reported after a Clay County ambulance collided with a car in southeast Lexington Tuesday morning.

      The accident happened at about 11:15 a.m. at the intersection of Richmond Road and Man O' War Boulevard. Police say the car and ambulance, which was on an active run, collided in the middle of the intersection.

      The patient in the back of the ambulance did not suffer any further injuries, and was eventually moved to a different ambulance and taken to UK Hospital.

      Police say neither the EMTs in the ambulance or the occupants of the car suffered injuries that required hospital treatment.

          No Charges Filed

          Police have decided not to file charges against a woman involved in a Lexington accident Monday night that sent a Morgan County ambulance driver and a patient in the ambulance to the hospital.

          The accident happened around 9:30 p.m. at the intersection of Broadway and New Circle Road. Police say that Rebecca M. Rogers, 27, failed to stop as the ambulance entered the intersection with siren blaring and lights flashing. Witnesses say the ambulance paused at the intersection and then proceeded when the driver apparently thought it was clear. Everyone stopped - except Rogers. The Hyundai Sonata she was driving plowed into the ambulance, causing it to flip.

          "One person didn't stop. I don't know if she didn't hear it or see it or what, but the ambulance went over top. It was so strong it made it flip. It was really fast, really awful," John Slone, a witness, said.

          Claudette Roe, 58, was driving the ambulance to St. Joseph's Hospital.

          "I didn't see anything else moving. All traffic looked stopped. And all directions I looked and so I proceeded to go on through the red light. And it was almost instantly, felt like I was riding a guard rail and we landed on the drivers side," she said.

          Rogers, a child in her car, Roe and her partner were all checked out at the hospital. The female patient in the ambulance was listed in critical condition at UK Hospital. It's unclear whether the patient's condition is a result of the crash, or from a previous illness.
