Pedestrian killed by oncoming ambulance

A 25-year-old pedestrian crossing at an unlit section of road near Hradec Králové was struck and killed on Friday night by an oncoming ambulance. The ambulance driver swerved at the last second but was unable to avoid the collision; the vehicle continued another 20 metres before coming to a stop. The ambulance did not have warning lights on but was not transporting any other passengers.
