DEMS Medic 6 Damaged In Hit & Run
Detroit’s West Side: A Detroit EMS rig was struck today while conveying a Code 1 (emergency) patient to Detroit Receiving Hospital.
Detroit EMS Medic 4 had just picked up an accident victim from the I-96 & I-94 when a blue Chevy Equinox slammed into their rig, disabling it. The accident occurred at around 12:30pm near the intersection of Canfield & John R, just west of DRH.
“He Messed Up My Truck”
No injuries were reported but the rig suffered enough damage to where the patient had to be transferred to DEMS Medic 8 for the remainder of the run.
Interesting side note, DEMS Medic 6 voluntarily replaced DEMS Medic 8 on the original run.
The blue Chevy Equinox was last seen rabbiting east on Canfield towards St Antoine.
