Two people were injured — one of them airlifted — after an ambulance rolled over on Thursday afternoon while transporting a patient.
The wreck was reported just after 3 p.m. at the intersection of FM 775 and FM 467 about 3 miles south of New Berlin when a vehicle from Acadian Ambulance flipped and struck a utility pole.
Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Ryan Olson said the medical transport van was traveling north on FM 775 when it apparently went off the east side of the road.
“The driver loses control, drives across the highway into the culvert, (where the van) flips and hits the telephone pole,” he said.
Crews from New Berlin VFD, Wilson County District 1 Fire and Rescue, Seguin Fire EMS, Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office and GVEC responded to the call.
The driver of the ambulance was trapped inside and was cut out of the vehicle.
They were flown by Methodist AirCare to San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment.
The patient who was being transported was also taken to SAMMC by ambulance.
The conditions of the two victims are unknown. The third person in the vehicle didn’t report any injuries. Law enforcement officials said the cause of the wreck is under investigation.
