Ambulance slams into pole on 146

April 6, 2011

LINCOLN — A 20-year-old Pawtucket man was hurt Wednesday evening when the ambulance he was driving on Route 146 North went off the road and struck a utility pole, according to State Police.
Michael Bergeron of 6 Hatfield St., Pawtucket, was alone in the Med Tech ambulance van when it struck the pole in front of Cox Communications on Route 146 North just past the Route 99 onramp, according to State Police Lt. Michael J. Gill of State Police Headquarters in Scituate.
Bergeron did not appear to have suffered serious injuries in the 5:41 p.m. crash with the wooden utility pole but was transported by Lincoln Rescue for treatment at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, Gill said.
The van-style ambulance was heading north past the Route 99 interchange when it veered right into the utility pole, Gill said. No charges were lodged against the driver. The incident was investigated by members of the Scituate State Police Barracks and the Lincoln Police Department. Evening commute traffic on Route 146 north was diverted around the accident scene on Route 146 while Lincoln firefighters and a towing company cleared the wreckage.
