According to the authorities, this Las Vegas car accident occurred yesterday at just after 10:30 a.m. A woman who was reportedly already in critical condition was riding in an ambulance receiving treatment when that ambulance was hit by the driver of a pickup truck at the intersection of West Craig Road and North Decatur Boulevard. The ambulance rolled over onto its side as a result of the impact, and both rescue workers riding in the back of the vehicle were injured along with four other people. The woman was transported to a nearby hospital but did not survive the additional injuries.
