Beatrice fire and rescue ambulance involved in an accident in southeast Lincoln

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) — Beatrice Fire and Rescue was transporting a patient to Lincoln Sunday morning when she crashed into a car.

Police said the ambulance was traveling north on 48th Street when it violated traffic lights at 48th and Nebraska Pkwee and crashed into an eastbound vehicle. However, the ambulance had its emergency lights and sirens on, and the other vehicle did not leave when the accident occurred.

“If you have your emergency lights and sirens turned on, you are exempt from traffic rules, but you must drive with due regard for public safety,” Officer Christopher Vollmer said.

It is not yet clear if any citations will be issued.

LFR responded and helped with the transport of the first patient. BFR said two employees were taken to Brian West for evaluation. Both have been discharged from the hospital and are expected to return to work soon.

Passengers in the second car reported minor injuries.

The ambulance was wrecked.
