Ambulance driver ticketed for fatal crash

A 24-year-old paramedic was handed a ticket for the ambulance crash that killed a woman in September.

A 24-year-old paramedic was handed a ticket for the ambulance crash that killed a woman in September.

On Sept. 17, an ambulance was on Route 103 from Halifax transporting 53-year-old Kim Linette Baker to the Bridgewater hospital.

RCMP said in a report released Friday that the road and weather conditions the day of the collision were very good.

But the ambulance drove off the highway and landed in a wooded area near Hubbards, killing Baker, of Newburne, Lunenburg Co. The two paramedics suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

RCMP said all aspects of the collision were examined by reconstruction experts who could give no cause for this accident other than the ambulance crossed the centre line.

The driver was issued a ticket for driving left of a solid line on the highway. He was charged last month and if he wants to contest the ticket, a court date of Jan. 21 has been set.

RCMP say the investigation is completed and no more charges will be coming.
