Ambulance driver in mishap

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, May 24, 2014

A MINISTRY of Health employee has been interviewed and released by police after the ambulance he was driving veered off the road while transporting a sick patient from Dreketi to the Labasa Hospital.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri yesterday said the patient was accompanied by the parents and a nurse.

"The driver was attending to a call of emergency and along the way, the ambulance veered off the road," he said.

"The patient was rushed to the hospital while the driver was interviewed and released.

"Right now, we are waiting for the medical examiner's report before laying charges on the driver."

Insp Sokomuri has once again pleaded with drivers to be extra cautious while on the road.

The Ministry of Health had earlier warned ambulance drivers to take extra precaution when providing emergency services to the public.
