The privately-owned Keeney Ambulance and Transport Service unit had a patient onboard at 6 pm when a flatbed truck coming the opposite direction went slightly over the center line and the truck bed caught the body and ripped it open.

Nobody was injured in the accident, fortunately.  Ambulance equipment was strewn for several hundred feet along the highway that had to be shut down for more than an hour.  It was not reported whether the ambulance was running emergency or routine.

The truck driver was cited for driving left of center.

The Lafayette Journal & Courier has the STORY.
