Ambulette knocks 67-year-old unconscious
A woman was rushed to Westchester Medical Center Monday after she was struck and knocked unconscious by an ambulette.
Police say the ambulette driver admitted to hitting the 67-year-old woman. He told investigators she darted into the street at Palisade and Ashburton avenues near a senior living home in Yonkers, leaving him little time to react.
Just two weeks ago, a fire truck crashed into a van at the same corner. The crosswalk light was malfunctioning at the time of the latest accident. Blood now stains the spot where the woman was hit.
Residents say they're not surprised the accident happened where it did. "I see many, many accidents on this corner many times," says Julio Ortiz.
Police say the driver, who had previously left the ambulette company in 2006, was only back on the job for about a week before the incident. No charges have been filed.
The victim later regained consciousness, but her condition is unknown.
