Driver of Other Vehicle Charged
A LEE COUNTY, FLORIDA, AMBULANCE was transporting a patient in Fort Myers Sunday evening when a pickup truck sidewiped it. The impact caused the ambulance to swerve off the road and smash into a palm tree. It also caused a cement power pole to break and tumble across the cab of the ambulance.
The wreck happened around 7:45 pm and was caused by the driver of the pickup, Jacinto Torres, 42, who has been charged with failure to drive within a single lane and failure to signal when changing lanes.
The driver of the ambulance, Bunny Adams, and two other EMT's along with their patient were all transported with non-serious injuries. An unknown number of passengers from the pickup truck were also transported. It hasn't been disclosed whether the ambulance was running emergency or not.
