WEST FARGO — An ambulance tipped over near the I-94 overpass at Veteran's Boulevard Friday morning, October 16.
Emergency crews were called out to several injury crash reports throughout the morning after snow started falling overnight, making area roadways slick.
According to a press release from the city of West Fargo, the ambulance is from the Grant-Roberts Ambulance Service, based in Sisseton, South Dakota.
The release states that a West Fargo fire engine was in the vicinity at the time of the crash — around 7:30 a.m. — and arrived on scene within minutes. West Fargo firefighters and police officers worked to extricate the original patient who was being transported and the three medical personnel involved. Four patients were transported from the scene to a hospital.
City officials say this was the third call for motor vehicle collisions this morning in West Fargo, all were along the I-94 corridor. Mutual aid from West Fargo Rural Fire also responded to collisions at Sheyenne and I-94 during this incident.
“We want to remind residents to drive slowly and be cautious of others while on the roadways,” said West Fargo Fire Department Chief Dan Fuller.
