Here’s Why Listening For Sirens Is Always A Good Idea

Whether or not this guy didn’t hear the siren or for some reason he just assumed that it was safe to change lanes, is unclear. What is clear is that this type of accident shouldn’t ever happen.

We can definitely make a lot of assumptions ourselves about what happened here. We could even argue against the ambulance driver, because as most people will tell you in traffic, you can never know if they have an actual emergency or they just don’t feel like sitting around in heavy traffic.

But then you need to consider that even if the ambulance isn’t on an emergency call, it has to be available to answer one, which kind of means not being stuck in traffic. Anyway, wrong side of the road, sires blasting, what could go wrong?

Apparently loads, because even though the ambulance was driving really slow, trying to give everyone plenty of time and room to get out of the way, the driver of this red E39 BMW 5 Series (without functioning ABS?) thought that it was a good time to not pay attention to his surroundings. Didn’t he see the Dark Knight?

Seriously, there must have been something wrong with his car for his wheels to lock up the way they did. And another thing, how fast was he going that he couldn’t just slot back behind the car he was already overtaking?

At least his airbags deployed and emergency medical services got to him immediately, though it wasn’t like they had any choice.
