Boston Police Investigate Collision Involving a Pedestrian and an EMS Ambulance in Jamaica Plain

At about 12:08pm officers from District E-13 (Jamaica Plain) responded to a radio call for a motor vehicle collision involving a child at 3704 Washington Street.

On arrival officers spoke the child's mother who stated she pulled over on Washington Street (outbound) to let her daughter out; as her daughter crossed the street she was struck by an ambulance. Officers observed there was ‘no crosswalk’ present at the location.

Officers also spoke with a female who stated she was the passenger in the ambulance, involved in the collision with the female pedestrian and a parked motor vehicle.  She further stated they were en route to an emergency call with ‘emergency lights and sirens’ operating when the young female (victim) ran out in front of the ambulance. She reported the operator of the ambulance, attempted to avoid the girl by swerving sharply to the right and colliding with a parked car. At that point the young girl was struck.   The 12 year old female victim was treated on scene and transported to Children’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The female operator of the ambulance was also treated on scene and subsequently transported to Carney for stress related injuries.
