Collision: Another Ambulance Gets Smashed


(THUNDER BAY, ON) โ€“ Collisions are a regular occurrence on roadways around the world, and Thunder Bay is no exception. Interestingly enough, two ambulances have been struck while not in motion in the last little while.


While responding to a tractor-trailer that was in the ditch of Dawson Road, a Superior North EMS ambulance was on the side of the road with itโ€™s flashers on when it got swiped by a tractor-trailer that was driving by. Nobody sustanied serious injuries from that incident which happened a while ago.

Today, while stopped at a red light, a Superior North EMS ambulance was once again struck. SNAPP stated that there was no emergency at the time and there was no passenger on board the vehicle.

Both of these collisions could have been easily avoided and are clearly of no fault of the paramedics that were operating the ambulances involved.

SNAPP and TRCCTB would like to urge the public to drive with care and ensure you are always paying attention to the roadway. Our hard-working paramedics would like to come home to their families after their shift.

  1. Why is it when im driving and an ambulance/firetruck comes by with the lights on half the drivers around don’t pull over. Or still try to go through intersections, Cut them off or follow close behind them? Get it together people!

  2. When a vehicle operator strikes any safety vehicle with it’s warning lights flashing, that drive should have his/her license suspended for a few months, points against their license in addition to reparation costs to the vehicle. Maybe then, A-hole drivers will learn to obey the laws.
