Ambulance with patient tips onto its side on Route 400

A Trans Am ambulance, carrying an accident victim from Olean to Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo on the icy Route 400 at about 8:25 p.m Thursday in the Town of Aurora, struck a snowbank and rolled onto its side, according to East Aurora-Town of Aurora Police.

None of the three Trans Am medical personnel on the ambulance was injured, and there appeared to be no further injuries to the patient onboard, according to Police Lt. Shane M. Krieger.

The patient was transported from the roll-over scene to ECMC by Rural/Metro Medical Services ambulance.

Police were assisted at the scene by the South Wales and Holland fire companies.

The northbound lane of Route 400 was temporarily closed for about two miles between Olean Road and the entrance to Route 20A because of the accident.
