Turlock, CA- Bicyclist Killed After The Ambulance That Was Taking Him To The Hospital Was Broadsided By A Pick Up Truck
After the bicyclist was struck by a vehicle, about 3 miles from the said crash, the ambulance that was taking the victim to a hospital was broadsided by a pick up truck in Turlock, CA on Thursday, July 25, 2019. The broadsided crash was reportedly a rollover crash. The ambulance was heading west on Monte Vista Avenue with its lights and sirens turned on when it was broadsided by a pick up truck travelling south on North Golden State Boulevard. Turlock fire fighters involved in the crash were treated. The American Medical Response paramedic and the EMT sustained non life threatening injuries from the crash. The condition of the driver of the pick up truck was not known. Investigators were trying to determine as to whether or not the driver of the pick up truck or the ambulance driver had the right of way. An autopsy will reportedly be done in order to find out if the bicyclist died due to injuries sustained from the first crash or the second crash when the ambulance was broadsided by the pick up truck. It was not clear what kind of treatment the bicyclist was getting in the ambulance when the second crash happened.
