A paramedic was slightly injured by a passing car. An outside mirror of the car touched the woman on the back, who just had to get a stretcher from the ambulance in Vallendar to take care of an injured pedestrian, the police said on Wednesday evening. At the time, traffic was being diverted past the scene of the accident and the blue lights were on.
The impact was so strong that the mirror of the vehicle was damaged. Instead of taking care of it, the driver complained why the paramedic was on the road and then drove on without "seriously" caring or leaving her personal details. She is now being investigated for "traffic accident escape with personal injury". The police emphasized that it was "certainly not a trivial offense".
