Driver Says He Didn’t See Ambulance Before Collision

first_imgAnother ambulance was dispatched to treat DiCicco and Scott, while a third was sent to the original call.DiCicco and Scott were treated at Manatee Memorial Hospital. Their conditions were unavailable Tuesday. Truong and his passenger were uninjured. No charges have been filed in the case, the FHP reported. The ambulance was headed north where U.S. 41 and U.S. Business 41 merge south of U.S. 19. Truong told the FHP the ambulance was in his blind spot. He said he tried to move to the left side of the road because there was traffic on his right-hand side, but that put him in the ambulance’s path. BRADENTON, Fla. — The driver of a pickup that swerved into the path of an ambulance Monday, causing the ambulance to flip over, told authorities he heard the ambulance’s sirens but did not see the vehicle, a Florida Highway Patrol report states. DiCicco swerved farther to the left to avoid Truong’s pickup, then flipped over, according to the report. According to the FHP, the accident occurred shortly before 3 p.m., when a 2003 Nissan pickup driven by Hiep Truong, 46, of Bradenton, swerved into the path of an ambulance driven by Manatee County paramedic Paul DiCicco, who was responding to a respiratory emergency with emergency medical technician Angela Scott.last_img read more

Alberta Liquor Store Association proposes plan to sell legal pot

first_imgThe Alberta Liquor Store Association is ready and willing to start selling legal marijuana at existing booze retailers.And, a new poll commissioned by the ALSA finds 52 per cent of Albertans want the province to explore the idea.ALSA President Ivonne Martinez said in most cities, these businesses are already zoned to be away from schools and playgrounds, and the staff is highly trained to sell a controlled substance.“And that is a huge process, that if the Alberta government wants to try and meet the really fast deadlines, it makes sense to use existing infrastructure,” she said.“Instead of the government spending all of this money building stores, hiring people, business people are the ones that take the liability of the cost.”The industry has already mapped out what store layouts would look like: bud wouldn’t be sold next to bottles.“We know it needs to be sold in a different way, especially since it’s going to be new for so many people — a store within a store, but with a separate entrance, where people can go in, get verified for whatever the Government of Alberta decides is going to be the minimum age,” Martinez said, adding there would be an opportunity to educate the customer one on one about the drug.Martinez said they are at the table, talking to politicians.“We realize that they have to look at all options available to them. The one thing we always just try and remind them is the legislation itself from Ottawa does not restrict co-location.”last_img read more
