Two Hatzolah Paramedics Involved In MVA

Hatz-monoc logo2_wmAt approximately 2:00 p.m. this afternoon, two Haztolah paramedics working on MONOC were responding to a call in Toms River when they were involved in an MVA. Sources tell TLS, the units were on an ambulance together responding to a call, when they were rear-ended by a vehicle while stopped at an intersection. Apparently, the vehicle behind the ambulance came to a stop, while a third vehicle traveling behind, failed to stop. One of the members drove himself to the hospital with minor injuries and was released a short time later.

  1. Why was the ambulance stopped at the intersection? In some places the ambulances have some way of making the light be green for when the ambulance gets there. I think that would be a huge step in getting to calls faster and saving more lives. Maybe the Askanim of Lakewood can arrange it.

  2. Hatzolah has been there for us in our needs and we need to be there when they are in need. MOVE OVER, there are some yackers on the road that think they own the road. WHat if it was your life on the line, wouldn’t you want someone to move over. I hope all is well in this situation.

  3. you are supposed to move to the right when an emergency vehicle is coming with its lights and sirens, but, what do you do when you are at the intersection and want to make a left turn, how do you move to the right and then make your left turn? I just want to know that’s why I am asking.

  4. Common sense
    Still move to the right and if you have to make yourleft at the next intersection consider it your part to help the injured
    An ambulance or any emergency vehical will never pass on the right always on the left so as long as you don’t move over you are blocking the way

  5. An emergency vehicle can only pass through an intersection if it is given the right of way. If heavy traffic -or foolish drivers- don’t give it clearance, the emergency vehicle may not pass through.
