Worst Karma Ever: Two Paramedics Injured When Hit-And-Run Driver Slams Ambulance
Somebody out there increased their bad karma factor by a zillion on Saturday after broadsiding an ambulance and fleeing the scene leaving two Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics injured as they were transporting a patient in Watts, reports LA Now.
"The ambulance was traveling south on Wilmington Avenue about 11 p.m. when it was struck by a vehicle headed west on Santa Ana Boulevard, Los Angeles Police Sgt. Cy Feliciano said. The driver of the non-emergency vehicle fled on foot."
According to authorities, one of the paramedics was "knocked unconscious" and the other suffered a shoulder injury. Both were transported to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, treated and released, while the ambulance patient, who was reportedly unaffected by the accident, was transported to a different hospital, said a Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman.
Please call the South Traffic Division detectives at (323) 290-6063 with any information regarding the accident.
