(Memphis) An ambulance on top of another vehicle shut down I-240 at Perkins Thursday evening.
Nate Frazier was driving along in his car when he saw an SUV hit another car. The SUV somehow wound up airborne and flew over the concrete barrier where it hit an ambulance sending it on top of another car.
Frazier and other drivers came to a stop on 240 and rushed to try to get the drivers out of all the cars.
“He was trapped in, his legs were pinned under. Me and another guy a guy from UPS, we got in broke the windows and got him out of vehicle…He said he was OK, just get him out of the vehicle, ‘help me out, help me out.’”, said Frazier.
Another ambulance was behind the one that got hit, so those paramedics were able to help immediately.
There were no patients in the wrecked ambulance, which belongs to Rural Metro.
Five ambulances were called to the scene, and four people were taken to the hospital in critical condition. Their conditions have since been upgraded to non-critical.
