Dublin Fire Brigade investigating how a wheel fell off an ambulance while driving
AN INVESTIGATION HAS been launched after a rear wheel fell off a Dublin Fire Brigade ambulance.
It is latest in a string of incidents raising questions over the safety of ambulances in Ireland.
It is understood the incident occurred at 7.30am this morning when the vehicle was driving on the N3 near Kempton in Dublin.
Dublin Fire Brigade said the ambulance was returning to the station and there were no patients on board.
A statement said the ambulance had a “wheel problem”, and confirmed that the incident is currently under full investigation.
A source said that no one was seriously injured in the incident.
Last month, an HSE ambulance transferring a patient from Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital Drogheda to St James’s Hospital Dublin broke down on the way.
It is understood that the ambulance was carrying a patient who was on life support.
The National Ambulance Service said the crew reported that the ambulance had lost power on the M1 motorway at 4.48pm on Saturday.
