Whilst many people were getting into the Christmas spirit on Christmas Eve, the usual degenerates were out there causing no-end of grief to the emergency services.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service emergency ambulance was left with considerable damage after being involved in a collision with another vehicle on Heath Town, Wolverhampton late on Christmas Eve.
Luckily, no patients were inside the emergency ambulance at the time and the crew escaped any severe injuries.
Tweeting about the incident, @ResponseWMP Said:
“A Unit Wolverhampton attended a shocking incident tonight in #Heathtown when a man crashed into an @OFFICIALWMAS crew before abusing them & running away , leaving his car behind.
“The crew are ok but shook up.
“Luckily no patients on board. Not a great start to their Christmas”.
It is not yet known as to whether or not the individual driving the vehicle that collided with the emergency ambulance has been found by the police.
If not, then let’s hope that it won’t be long until the long arm of the law reaches the person responsible.
Yet again, whilst many people got to enjoy Christmas with friends and family, emergency services personnel up-and-down the country were out trying to keep the country from imploding.
And yet this is how some people show their gratitude for our much-loved emergency services.
