Ambulance goes over embankment near Rossland

No injuries reported in Thursday morning crash near Rossland

The rescuers needed rescuing on Thursday morning when an ambulance went off the road in Rossland.

It is unknown whether the ambulance was responding to an emergency when the vehicle and the three occupants went off the road on Highway 3B between Feeney’s Road and the Rock Cut Pub and Restaurant.

Dan Derby, deputy fire chief for the Kootenay Boundary Fire Department says the passengers and the driver of the ambulance were injured but stable after the accident.

“It was two paramedics and a nurse,” he said. “All three were stable when they left the scene and were transported to our hospital here (in Trail). They did not have a patient on board.”

According to Derby the road conditions weren’t hazardous at the time of the incident and fire crews were sent out to give a hand.

“The (road) conditions were good,” he said. “We responded with our crews from Trail and we also responded with a crew from Rossland. When we arrived on scene, we set up to support them.”
