Ambulance, LifeStar leave scene of ‘traumatic’ injury accident without transporting patient
Emergency crews were dispatched to the scene of a traumatic injury accident south of Eudora shortly after 3:15 Friday, Douglas County Undersheriff Steve Hornberger said.
However after spending nearly an hour on the scene, a LifeStar helicopter that had been resting in the front yard left the scene without transporting anyone. Lawrence Douglas County Fire and Medical crews returned a gurney to their ambulance at the same time.
Hornberger declined to say whether the victim had died but said to check back later Friday afternoon.
Units from Eudora Township Fire Department assisted Lawrence Douglas County Fire and Medical crews with what was described as a vehicle rolling over onto a person. Witnesses on the scene could see crews trying to work beneath a large truck.
According to Douglas County tax records, the property is owned by John Thoren.
