In an accident that occurred earlier this month involving an Emory bus, a private vehicle, and an ambulance, the driver of the ambulance has been cited for causing the accident.
The accident sent the Emory shuttle bus into a local tax preparation business after the ambulance ran a red light. The ambulance was a non-emergency transportation ambulance and was carrying a second person and a patient at the time of the accident.
The Emory bus had just picked up passengers at South Dekalb Mall minutes before the accident. Most of these passengers were those on the bus at the time of the accident and most were Emory employees.
The driver of the ambulance, Lemonte Renard Weaver, was cited for a red light violation. Weaver reportedly admitted that he had fallen asleep while driving. Previously, Weaver had been charged with street racing in July of 2014, but later pleaded guilty to driving too fast for conditions in October of the same year.
No one was seriously injured in the accident. Eight people from the bus were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and two were taken to Atlanta Medical Center. All were listed in good condition.
