Semi-truck vs. ambulance accident kills two people
An ambulance and 18-wheeler accident took the life of two people and injured two more on May 13 in Boone County.
The accident occurred when the ambulance was transporting a patient in critical condition to a hospital in Des Moines and rear-ended a semi-truck.
The semi driver saw the ambulance running red lights behind him and tried to pull over to the right but the ambulance also pulled to the right and collided with the truck.
A nurse and the patient being transported were both killed in the accident. A paramedic and ambulance driver were both transported to the hospital to be treated for injuries sustained.
Our thoughts go out to the family and friends who are connected to this accident.
