Two People Killed After Aiding Stalled Ambulance in Bleckley County, Georgia
BLECKLEY COUNTY, GA. – An online news story posted online at 41nbc.com reports that two people were killed in a traffic accident after aiding a stalled ambulance in Bleckley County, Georgia. The people were reportedly friends of the ambulance driver and were trying to merge onto Interstate 16 when the crash happened.*
Georgia State Patrol Troopers reported to 41 NBC that an ambulance that had been traveling on Interstate 16 experienced some issues and broke down. It is not clear with what agency the ambulance is affiliated or what direction the ambulance was traveling on I-16.
After pulling to the shoulder, the driver of the ambulance contacted a friend to help. The friend arrived at the site in a Toyota Prius and helped the ambulance driver make some repairs. The ambulance was able to run again, and then the ambulance and the Toyota tried to merge onto the interstate again from the shoulder.
A passing tractor-trailer then collided with the back of the Prius, which forced the Prius to crash into the back of the ambulance. The report from 41 NBC indicates the Prius caught on fire after the collision, and the two occupants inside the Prius died due to their injuries.
It is unclear if the driver of the ambulance or anyone inside the tractor-trailer was injured in the wreck. No one involved in the accident has been identified at this time. Georgia State Patrol stated that family members of the victims have not yet been notified of the accident, and the State Patrol’s investigation of the accident is ongoing.
