UPDATE: Accident on Interstate 70 involving ambulance


VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – Just before 3 p.m. a Sullivan County ambulance was returning from dropping a patient off in Indianapolis.

According to officials, the ambulance was driving westbound on I-70 near the 12 mile marker.

The driver of the ambulance drifted off the south edge of the roadway, and couldn’t regain control.

The ambulance began to rotate clockwise in the median, eventually rolling over multiple times, coming to a stop on the driver’s side about 200 feet from where it left the roadway.

The driver of the ambulance, 25-year-old EMT Jessica Boyle and the passenger, 27-year-old EMT Kindra West from Jasonville, were able to get themselves out of the ambulance with minor injuries.

There were no patients on board.

Boyle says a strong gust of wind, while passing a commercial truck was a contributing factor in the crash.
