The patient who died Tuesday after the ambulance she was in was struck and rolled onto its side has been identified by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
North Las Vegas resident Dorothy Anita Gray, 63, was the patient, the Coroner's Office said. She was being transported around 10:38 a.m. in a MedicWest ambulance when a pickup truck hit the ambulance at the intersection of West Craig Road and North Decatur Boulevard, according to Metro Police.
All six people inside the two vehicles involved were transported from the accident. Gray was taken to Mountain View Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later. The driver of the pickup truck as well as the two firefighters and two MedicWest personnel who were in the ambulance were transported to University Medical Center Trauma with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
The cause and manner of Gray’s death is pending, the Coroner’s Office said.
