JAMESTOWN -- An ambulance had $80,000 in damage, but two workers were uninjured when it rolled over on an icy patch of Interstate 94 east of Jamestown Monday night.

JAMESTOWN -- An ambulance had $80,000 in damage, but two workers were uninjured when it rolled over on an icy patch of Interstate 94 east of Jamestown Monday night.

The ambulance driver, Aaron Tangren, 31, Bismarck, and William Caldwell, 24, Jamestown, were wearing seat belts, the patrol said.

Tangren was driving a 2010 Ford E350 ambulance west on Interstate 94 at about 8:53 p.m. when it slid into the median and rolled, the patrol said. Freezing conditions and winds created the icy stretch of highway as multiple vehicles slid into the ditch and median, the patrol said.

No patients were being transported at the time of the crash as it was returning from a trip to a Fargo hospital.

After the rollover, another Jamestown Area Ambulance transported Tangren and Caldwell to Jamestown Regional Medical Center, where they were treated and released. The ambulance driver was cited for care required, and the crash remains under investigation, said the Patrol.
