Two killed when ambulance, truck collide
HAMILTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WTVC) – A pickup truck and an ambulance carrying five people collided head-on this morning on Highway 58 in Hamilton County, Tennessee. The driver and passenger in the pickup truck were both killed.
There were five people in the ambulance, including a nurse, two paramedics, and a special needs patient and mother.
The ambulance did not have the lights or sirens on because it was taking the patient to a scheduled doctor’s appointment.
“The 1997 pick up truck for some reason was traveling northbound in the south bound lane and it was a head on collision,” Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department Janice Atkinson side.
Both victims were women in their 20′s who lived less than a half mile from the accident, witnesses said.
