POLICE: UPS driver blames box-truck for blocking view of ambulance with lights and sirens activated 


A crash between a semi truck and an ambulance was blamed on a box truck in Kentucky on Monday. 

The crash happened on the morning of February 20th in Lexington at the intersection of Georgetown Road and Citation Boulevard.

According to Lex 18 News, an ambulance was transporting a patient with its lights activated and the sirens on when a UPS tractor trailer slammed into it at the Georgetown Road and Citation Boulevard intersection. 

An EMT sustained minor injuries in the crash and the patient was transferred to another vehicle for transport to the University of Kentucky Hospital. 

When questioned by police, the truck driver told officers that his view was blocked by a box truck, which led to the crash with the ambulance. 

Georgetown Road and part of Citation Boulevard was closed while crews worked to clear the scene and investigate the incident. It is unclear if the truck driver was cited for the incident.
