| Friday, February 12, 2010


FARGO, N.D. - A 92-year-old man being transported from Jamestown to Fargo when the ambulance he was in rolled on icy Interstate 94 has died, though authorities have not said whether the crash was a factor.



Albert Geiszler of Jamestown was being transported to MeritCare Hospital on Monday when the ambulance rolled. The Highway Patrol says he died Thursday.



Ambulance service officials said earlier that Geiszler was being treated at Meritcare for injuries unrelated to the crash.



The two ambulance workers in the vehicle when it rolled were treated for minor injuries after the crash.



The ambulance was destroyed. Jamestown Ambulance says it will borrow a vehicle from the ambulance service in Fergus Falls, Minn., until it can be replaced.
