Fort Myers (FL) cops are conducting a traffic homicide
investigation due to the death of an unborn baby. Just before 1700
yesterday, the police responded to a crash involving an ambulance and an
SUV at the intersection of Veronica Shoemaker Boulevard and Canal
Street. Witnesses say the driver of the ambulance ran a stop sign at the intersection and the two collided.
26-year-old Kristina Childs was driving the SUV. She had a 3-year-old, a
5-year-old and a 17-year-old in the car with her. Two paramedics in the
ambulance were transporting a patient to Gulf Coast Hospital, but
witnesses say the emergency equipment was not activated. All
four people in the SUV were transported to Lee Memorial Hospital. The
paramedic driving the ambulance and the patient being transported were
also taken to the hospital. All had serious injuries.
