A local company is helping people overseas by donating an ambulance. The vehicle is going to a vocational school with more than 1,700 students in Liberia from Allina Health Emergency Medical Services. Representatives of the Booker Washington Institute’s Alumni Association got a tour of the gently-used ambulance on Thursday. The school will use the ambulance to transport sick and injured students.
Three people were hospitalized after an Allina Health ambulance – with a patient inside – collided head-on with an SUV early Saturday morning in Wright County. Lt. Sean Deringer of the Wright County Sheriff’s office says this was an unusual crash considering those involved. “It certainly brings it to a personal level when we know the people involved,” Lt. Deringer said.
