EMS 5 has some bad luck… the last unit that got into a bad accident was EMS 5, and that truck was totaled when their patient stole it and crashed it on Falls of Neuse Road. The patient was killed in the wreck.

I thought that was ems 7 that was stolen by the patient on falls. I know ems 7 was stolen from the hospital and crashed into the parking deck.

Nope – he’s right. It was 5 that was carjacked from the Circle K last January and I believe it was 16 that went into the first level of the parking deck a few years ago.

EMS 5 was also the one stolen from WakeMed ED and crashed into the parking deck. I was assigned to A shift EMS 5, but it happened on C shift. I believe it was EMS 5 that was also involved in the MVC several years ago on Capital Blvd when the car pulled out in front of them and several in the car were killed.

Any word on who was at fault in this accident? I observe so many emergency vehicles not practicing safe response, i.e. not coming to a complete stop when clearing an intersection… I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on what actually happened. Most of the time I think that we automatically assume that the citizen is the one who screwed up when we have a public safety vehicle involved in a crash while responding… I am not looking to belittle the driver of EMS 5- just trying to remind all of us to be safe!

[ Editorial note. Discussions of fault in this forum, particularly if based on rumors or speculation, are probably less than beneficial. At least this soon after the incident. If a media story or news release surfaces, we’ll post a link to that information. Otherwise, let’s steer clear from discussions of the actions of the personnel directly involved in this incident. Feel free to discuss general vehicle safety issues, however. Ditto for past incidents. ]
