Chautauqua County: Arthur McArthur Killed In Car Accident After Driver Fell Asleep And Crashed

PATIENT KILLED IN FATAL ACCIDENT AFTER AMBULANCE DRIVER FELL ASLEEP

Chautauqua County, New York (February 24, 2017) –  A 77-year-old patient that was being transported from a hospital in Pennsylvania was tragically killed after the driver of an ambulance transporting him fell asleep.

Police tested the woman that was driving the ambulance for drugs and alcohol, but the results of those tests have not come back yet.

Ahorities have been able to identify the patient that was killed as Arthur McArthur. He was being transported from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center to a nursing and rehabilitation center.

It appears as though the accident took place in the town on Dunkirk which is about 35 miles southeast of Buffalo. An EMT that was sitting in the back of the ambulance also appears to have sustained injuries, though they are not life-threatening.

Our staff at the RMFW Law Firm were heartbroken to learn of the tragic accident involving Arthur McArthur. We extend our thoughts and prayers to the victims family as they seek answers about what happened.

I Chose The Right Attorney - “Attentive, Professional and Know About the Law…”

I referred Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff to a friend needing help with a birth injury & medical malpractice case. Having worked with founding partner Daniel Minc myself on a car accident case, I was sure they would be able to deliver results.
