Carlsbad, TX — There was an early-morning accident on Tuesday morning that left three people dead on U.S. 87 after an ambulance lost control on some ice. Texas DPS troopers identified paramedic Raymond Allison, 52, as a paramedic aboard the ambulance who was killed in the accident. Joann Moore, 45, was listed as the driver of the ambulance and she was last said to be hospitalized with incapacitating injuries.
The other two men killed in the ambulance were identified only as a patient and his brother, both full-grown men. Police said that Moore was driving the ambulance to San Angelo at about 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday morning, Feb 11, when she came across some black ice.
Moore lost control and swerved off the highway, then over-corrected. The ambulance overturned at least once before landing on its roof in a ditch. Allison, a paramedic on the ambulance, was killed along with the other two men in the back.
The accident injured Moore and she was taken to a nearby hospital. There’s no more information on what caused the wreck, but authorities are going to investigate some more.
