At the busy intersection of Valley Rd and Lorraine Ave, in front of Veggie Heaven, a woman was hit by a dark colored SUV. Witnesses said she tried running across the street, then was hit by the SUV around 1:30pm. She was injured and taken away by ambulance
Bernadette Baum, who was a few feet from the scene says EMT took ages to arrive but 4 or 5 cop cars came quickly.
Update: In the face of this accident, what seemed like “ages” for MVAU to arrive, in reality was only a few minutes. MVAU’s Corinna Sager responds:
“We would like to set the record straight. The ambulance took 6 minutes and was right behind one of the patrol cars which was even said over the air on the radio.
(industry average response time is 10 minutes, ours is 5 minutes).”
