On Sunday, October 16, 2016, an ambulance accident took place in Visalia. The Tulare County rollover vehicle collision happened on Main and Conyer streets, at about 10:00 AM.
An American Ambulance van was driving to Kaweah Delta Medical, with 84-year-old Robert Howard inside, being attended to by paramedics.
It is reported that the ambulance had its lights and sirens on when it was hit at the intersection of Main Street and Conyer Street. The vehicle was struck by a car driven by Robert Zielske, 69, that had been headed southbound on Conyer.
Upon impact, the ambulance overturned.
Everyone in the vehicle sustained minor injuries. Howard was transported to the hospital by another ambulance. He died a short while later.
It is unclear at this time if the crash contributed to the victim’s death or not.
