A crash involving a Jessamine County ambulance on the Nicholasville bypass Saturday caused multiple injuries.
The Jessamine County EMS ambulance was traveling north on U.S. 27 with emergency equipment activated as it approached a red light at the intersection with Ky. 169 around 12:50 p.m. Saturday, according to a Nicholasville police report. It collided with a gold truck eastbound on Ky. 169 that had a green light through the intersection.
“It appears that unit one (the ambulance) did not exercise due regard at the intersection,” the report reads.
The ambulance, driven by 19-year-old Samuel Sparks of Nicholasville, hit the gold truck in the front passenger-wheel area, according to the report, and then spun and slid into a black truck and a blue car stopped on Ky. 169 on the east side of the intersection.
The gold truck sustained moderate to severe damage, according to the report, and two of its four occupants were injured and transported to a Lexington hospital. The two occupants of the black truck were also injured; neither of the two people in the blue car were injured.
