Damn, a patient was in the ambulance on their way to the hospital when the crash happened. I was watching the clusterfark early this morning on the news, but you couldn't see much because it was still dark out and there were too many flashing lights from emergency vehicles. Reporters couldn't get near it, was all aerial shots.

"Hey man, if one of these engines fails, how far will the other one take us!?"

"All the way to the scene of the crash! Which is pretty handy cuz that's where we're headed! I bet we beat the paramedics there by a half-hour!"

This not that uncommon as an ambulance is by necessarily traveling fast and some people don't even slow down for one.

The old "Emergency" TV show had the ambulance colliding with another vehicle several times in the course of its run.

The majority of ambulance accidents are either caused by reckless driving or fatigued/tired driving. There are very few ambulance accidents that occur each year that are "unavoidable" or not the EMS unit's fault in some fashion.

At least in our state, lights and sirens are a request for a right of way which imposes a TON of legal requirements and risks on the emergency vehicle operator.

When you really want to chew out the driver that rear ended you, but you can't because they're busy saving your life.

Three people were in the ambulance, including a patient. All were okay, but were taken to the hospital to be checked out.

I guess the crash fixed the patient? Maybe it's one of those amnesia things were you need to be hit in the head a second time to remember.

Dasher McHappenstance: Chopper Four was first on the scene!


Some time in the mid 90s, the local NYC TV stations got into some weird helicopter war. Chopper 5 had Doppler radar, Chopper 4 had Super 4 Zoom, Chopper 7 had a guy with 9 confirmed kills in Vietnam. I honestly forget what the details were on each of them, but EVERY commercial for the local news focused on why they were flying the equivalent of Airwolf, and the other news programs sucked. It got to the point where i honestly think it became tongue and cheek.

Then one day, chopper 2, i think it was chopper 2, crashed at the scene of some big thing where all of the other helicopters were gathered around, and got footage of it going in. Like, it just randomly spiraled in on some 7 floor walkups roof in brooklyn or some shiat.

Everyone was ok, but then every station, for like months afterwards, was, "When blah blah blah happened chopper X was there....when blah blah blah happened, chopper X was there.....WHEN CHOPPER 2 farkING CRASHED INTO A BUILDING OUT OF THE SKY ALMOST KILLING US ALL, CHOPPER X WAS THERE, CAPTURING IT ALL
