(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Five emergency responders were injured on Dawson Road/Highway 102 this week. The incident started off with a transport rolling over in the ditch.
Superior North EMS, Police and Firefighters responded to the scene to assist the truck driver. As the truck driver was in the ambulance speaking to police a separate tractor-trailer hit the ambulance, causing it to strike more first responders outside of the ambulance.
Luckily, nobody was seriously injured. Dawson Road/Highway 102 is notorious for collisions happening on that roadway.
Ernie Kadikoff, Deputy Chief of District Operations, Superior North EMS is urging the public to respect the work first responders do and to give them the space they need. He added that “they deserve to be able to go home after their shift”.
