From West Mercia Police:

An ambulance technician has sadly died following an incident on A49 in Hereford this morning (Saturday 24 April).

We were called at around 8am to reports of an incident near the junction of Moreton Road, towards Leominster, involving an ambulance vehicle whilst on route to a 999 call.

Sadly the technician in the passenger’s side of the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene despite the efforts of the emergency services who attended.

Our thoughts are with the deceased’s love ones and our colleagues in West Midlands Ambulance Service at this difficult time.

We are asking anyone who may have seen the incident or have dashcam footage to contact us on 101 quoting incident 00101i of 24 April.
