Haywood County Ambulance wrecked in rollover accident

Haywood County Ambulance wrecked in rollover accident

Around 6:30 a.m. June 22, a Haywood County ambulance based out of Bethel lost control on a curve in a wet road and rolled down an embankment in the 700 block of Kim’s Cove Road.  

Both paramedics on board were uninjured. The ambulance came to rest at the bottom of the embankment near a home, and thankfully, no one in the home was injured. There was no structural damage to the home and minimal damage to the property. 

The ambulance was en route to an emergency call on Bunny Run Road in the Dutch Cove area at the time of the accident. Another ambulance was quickly dispatched to the original call. 

The wrecked ambulance was one of the older ambulances in Haywood County’s fleet and was typically used as a spare.
