(WICHITA, Kan.) — Two Sedgwick County EMS workers went to the hospital after their ambulance rolled during an early morning collision in southeast Wichita. One paramedic is in fair condition and the other was treated and released.
The crash happened just before 4:00 a.m. at Lincoln and Hillside. Sedgwick County Sheriff's investigators say the ambulance was struck by a speeding car that ran a red light.
The ambulance was not on a call at the time and did not have a patient aboard. Investigators say the 25 year-old driver of a Ford Taurus was driving south on Hillside at a high rate of speed, when he ran a red light and broadsided the ambulance as it headed east on Lincoln. The driver of the Taurus is also in serious condition.
The ambulance spun out, hit a curb and landed on its side, with the two paramedics trapped inside. The car came to rest against a brick building.
