A 19-year-old woman from Hellertown is facing felony robbery, attempted motor vehicle theft and other charges after police say she stole cigarettes and candy from a convenience store and then tried to flee the scene in an ambulance that was parked nearby.
Emergency medical providers in the region now have a ‘hands on’ opportunity to hone their skills thanks to the donation of a ‘retired’ ambulance that’s been outfitted to serve as a training ambulance for local EMS.
A motorist who pulled over to the side of Seidersville Road to allow an ambulance to pass was struck by another driver who was following her too closely, Lower Saucon Township Police said in a news release Monday.
Lower Saucon Township Police say a Palmer Township woman was charged with aggravated assault after she allegedly kicked an EMT from Dewey Ambulance and had to be restrained before being transported to St. Luke’s University Hospital, Fountain Hill on Nov. 8. In a news release issued Thursday, police said the alleged incident began when Michelle Rea Bush, 29, of the first block of Fairfield Court, was stopped by an officer near Black River Road and Route 378 for failure to maintain a lane of travel. Police said Bush “had a medical emergency while performing sobriety tests,” which prompted officers to call for an ambulance.
