Dallas paramedic hurt in crash with hit-and-run driver

- The driver who ran into a Dallas Fire-Rescue ambulance Wednesday night is still at large.

The ambulance was carrying a patient on the Central Expressway near Martin Luther King Boulevard in South Dallas around 10:30 p.m. It was hit by an SUV that didn’t stop.

Police said the driver of the SUV drove across MLK Boulevard to the Interstate 45 entry ramp, lost control and crashed into a guardrail. The driver then got away on foot.

The driver of the ambulance wasn’t hurt but the paramedic who was treating the patient in the back was. Another ambulance had to take both the paramedic and the patient to the hospital. They are expected to be okay.

Police are still looking for the driver who caused the wreck.
