Due to the proliferation of IPHONES with advanced video ability we are seeing more incredible video every day. In this clip M-50 has just been broadsided while responding to an emergency call. Traffic accidents are yet another hazard we face every day. Responding to emergencies through busy city streets while avoiding every obstacle thrown into your path can be treacherous to say the least. After years of emergency vehicle responses you become hyper- alert, constantly looking in all directions, trying to avoid some unseen road hazard or vehicle.
Despite this incident our accident rate is astonishingly low when the total number of emergency calls and miles logged is taken into account. The men and women who staff our ambulances and fire trucks as well are the best in the business. As you can see bystanders and police officers assisted the crew out of the flipped unit. That’s always comforting to see. Say a prayer for the speedy recovery of all involved.
