A Weems Memorial Hospital ambulance, en route to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital with a patient, crashed into a tree in Wakulla County during the early morning hours.
Florida Highway Patrol said that about 5:15 a.m. this morning, the ambulance driver. Christopher Dusek, 40, of Thomasville, Georgia, drove the ambulance, which was not in emergency mode, into the southbound shoulder of U.S. 319, possibly due to a medical episode that caused him to lose consciousness.
The ambulance traveled about 100 feet into a tree near Shawn Whaley Road, at the 1800 block of Sopchoppy Highway, just north of the city.
The three occupants, including emergency medical technician 32-year-old Mylon Peters of Crawfordville, and an unnamed 37-year-old patient, were taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.
FHP said no charges will be filed.
