ODESSA, TX, (Local Big 2 News) – An ambulance rushing to an accident, becomes part of a separate crash. The emergency vehicle collided with a Ford Mustang, and now the driver of the car faces multiple citations.
“Every time we run hot, it’s dangerous for us, it’s dangerous for the public,” explained Odessa Fire Batallion Chief Danny Wyatt.
It all happened near the intersection of University Boulevard and JBS Parkway in Odessa, at the height of rush hour around 5 pm Monday. An ambulance was responding to an accident, driving eastbound with its lights and sirens on. The ambulance was then forced to drive into the westbound lanes to avoid gridlock at the intersection.
