There were no injuries when a B.C. Ambulance Service slid off of Hwy 37 near Johnson Road on the way up the long hill leading to the Northwest Regional Airport earlier today.
Two paramedics from Kitimat were on a routine transfer of a patient from Mills Memorial Hospital back to Kitimat, says Shannon Miller who speaks for BC Emergency Health Services.
“Two paramedic crews from Terrace were called to the scene as were fire first responders, who helped with the patient, moving them to a waiting ambulance to take them back to the Terrace hospital,” she says.
“The paramedic crew, reported to be fine, were taken back to Kitimat.”
Road conditions were very slushy at the time of the accident.
Miller says routine ambulance transfers were halted until conditions improved on the highway.
Ambulance crews still respond to any emergency calls though, she says.
