Ambulance accidently wanders into ditch

Morning commuters were caught by surprise at the sight of an ambulance stuck in a ditch

The sight of an ambulance in a ditch raised concerns among morning commuters driving along the Trans Canada Highway on Aug. 27.

No patients were on board and no patients were left waiting because of the incident, said a statement from B.C. Emergency Health Services.

The ambulance driver apparently backed into the ditch beside the highway between the Helmcken overpass and the exit to the Old Island Highway. The crew was responding to a non-emergency request for assistance, which was covered by another ambulance in the area. No one was injured and the ambulance wasn’t damaged.
