Crew Hurt When Ambulance Collides Head-On With Horse

Two crew members of the Scotland County Ambulance Service were injured in a one-vehicle crash on Highway 27, two miles south of Wayland at 11:05 p.m. on July 13th.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the 2004 Ford ambulance was being driven northbound by Buddie C. Wilson, 60, of Memphis, when it struck a horse in the roadway.

The animal reportedly had been involved in a previous accident, being freed after a tractor-trailer had collided with the unoccupied wagon it was pulling. The horse and wagon reportedly had run off from two juveniles that had been using it to travel on a fishing trip to the river. The horse, spooked by the previous accident, was running south down the northbound lane of Highway 27 when it collided with the ambulance, which was returning from a patient transfer.

Wilson suffered minor injuries in the crash. He was taken by Clark County Ambulance to Keokuk Area Hospital in Keokuk, IA.

A passenger, David L. Dalton, 28, of Memphis, suffered serious injuries. He was transported by Air Evac helicopter to Blessing Hospital in Quincy, IL. Dalton is also an employee of the ambulance service.

The highway patrol was assisted at the scene by the Clark County Sheriffís Department, the Clark County Ambulance Service and the Clark County Rescue Squad.
