AM­BU­LANCE CRASH

Central Leader - - OUT & ABOUT -

An am­bu­lance carrying a pa­tient ploughed into a bus stop op­po­site Auck­land City Hos­pi­tal, in­jur­ing three pedes­tri­ans. A wit­ness said the am­bu­lance mounted the foot­path and struck a bus shel­ter on Park Rd in Grafton. The three peo­ple re­ceived mod­er­ate to mi­nor in­juries and were taken to Auck­land City Hos­pi­tal by other at­tend­ing am­bu­lances. St John said staff were at Auck­land Hos­pi­tal sup­port­ing these pa­tients. The orig­i­nal pa­tient in the am­bu­lance was un­in­jured in the crash and was also taken to Hos­pi­tal for fur­ther as­sess­ment. ’’The am­bu­lance was carrying an el­derly pa­tient on a stretcher - she seemed OK,’’ an eye wit­ness said. St John and po­lice said the cause of the crash was still un­known and in­ves­ti­ga­tions were on­go­ing.
