Crash with Ambulance Kills College Senior | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

A senior student at the College of Charleston was killed on Tuesday morning in South Carolina when her car was struck by an ambulance that had just left a downtown hospital.

The ambulance was just leaving the hospital on it’s way to an emergency call.  As the ambulance moved into the oncoming traffic lane to pass stopped cars, it collided with the student’s car, slamming into the driver’s side doors.  The impact of the crash was enough to send both vehicles careening into stopped cars.

The student, 22, died of head injuries an hour later at Medical University Hospital.
