Ambulance crashes causing a woman to die

Talk about a bad turn of events - A 47-year old Moreno Valley woman on her way to a hospital in an ambulance after suffering cardiac arrest died when the ambulance was hit by a 22-year old driving a passenger vehicle. The ambulance, with its siren and flashing lights on, went through a red light when it was hit. The ambulance, upon impact, flipped on its side, killing the woman. 

Moreno Valley Police are investigating to determine if the woman died from a heart attack or injuries sustained when the ambulance was hit. They do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor in the accident; no one was arrested or cited. They found evidence that the 22-year old tried to stop prior to the crash.

Additional ambulances were called to transport the 22-year old driver, two paramedics, and two firefighters to a local hospital for minor and moderate injuries. According to California vehicle code, "Emergency vehicles are required to stop at red lights, control traffic and proceed with caution". It is also stated and known by most motorists that they have the responsibility to yield to emergency vehicles.

It is not clear cut why this woman died; too many questions are unanswered at this time. An experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney would be an invaluable asset to the family of this 47-year old woman to determine what caused her death - to determine if her death could have been preventable.
