Ambulance badly damaged in Westmoreland crash
The Negril fire station's only ambulance was extensively damaged during an accident on the Mango Hall main road in Westmoreland about 6:15 p.m. Thursday.
The emergency vehicle was en route to the Savanna-la-Mar Hospital when it collided with a Mitsubishi motor car being driven by a woman.
The ambulance was transporting a man who had fallen from a tree.
All persons involved in the crash, including the passenger in the ambulance, have been taken to hospital.
The vehicle was handed over by the Government to the Negril fire station about three years ago.
District Officer Ralston Simpson said it was a “very, very big loss for Negril” and the wider Westmoreland as well as Hanover.
