PASADENA — The man whose all-terrain vehicle collided with an ambulance on the Trans-Canada Highway Friday morning has died of his injuries.
According to an RCMP media advisory issued late Friday night, the man died at Western Memorial Regional Hospital after being taken there from the scene of the accident.
The accident happened just after 11 a.m. near Exit 12 to Pasadena, where police said the man was trying to cross the highway when he was struck by the ambulance.
No one in the ambulance, including a patient it was transporting, were hurt. The RCMP said the patient’s transport was not an emergency situation.
The accident bent the front end of the ambulance inward and shattered its windshield. The quad came to rest on the medium of the highway on its wheels.
The release issued by the RCMP late Friday did not contain any information about the man, including his identity, where he was from or his age, and stated further details would be available today.
