ARLINGTON – Armstrong Ambulance reports that one of its ambulance’s windshield sustained damage over the weekend after a large chunk of ice flew off another vehicle on I-93.
At approximately 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 5, an Armstrong Ambulance was transporting a patient in the area of the I-93 and I-95 interchange when a large chunk of ice flew off another vehicle and struck the windshield of the ambulance.
At the time of the incident, two EMTs and a patient were in the ambulance. Armstrong Ambulance was able to safely transport the patient to their intended location without further incident. There were no injuries as a result of the incident.
Armstrong Ambulance filed a report with Massachusetts State Police and the ambulance will be out of service until the windshield is repaired.
“Following any type of snowstorm or icy weather, it’s imperative that drivers remove snow and ice from their vehicles, especially the roofs, as falling ice can cause major damage to other vehicles or serious injury to their occupants,” Armstrong CEO Richard Raymond said.
