Kansas EMS vehicle traveling to a call hit by deer

Hays Post – June 13, 2017

First responders had a difficult trip after a collision with a deer early Tuesday.
Just before 3 a.m. Saline County Emergency Medical Services were sent to a rural Gypsum residence for a 76-year-old woman with abnormal breathing.

Despite lights and sirens on, a deer ran into the passenger side door of the emergency vehicle in the 2400 block of East K-4 Highway, according to Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan.
Chad Perez, 43, Salina, was driving the EMS vehicle at the time of the collision.

Emergency crews were able to still respond to the call.

A Sheriff’s deputy was sent to the location, where he found the dead deer in the ditch. Sheriff Soldan said the EMS vehicle had a dent in the passenger side but a damage estimate was not available.
