Update: Ambu-cycle

Well, it seems that I prematurely published my photo of the ambu-cycle on Monday. Less than 24 hours after posting that photo, I was able to take a photo of an ambu-cycle in action.

The ambu-cycle stopped far enough away to allow the ambulance access, but was there to attempt to stabilize the situation as best as possible until the ambulance could arrive.

In this case, a pedestrian was hit by a bus. Apparently, the pedestrian darted out onto the street in an effort to cross to the other side. It appeared that the bus tried to avoid the man by swerving hard to the left, but still struck him.

In the photo below, the bus driver is explaining to the police what happened. The damage to the windshield is also clearly visible.

The driver was very calm after the victim was taken away. He seemed satisfied that he had done everything he could to avoid the pedestrian.

About 17 years ago, I was sitting in the front seat of a Jerusalem city bus that struck and killed an elderly lady who darted across the street in front of us. The visual of that event is still vivid in my mind.
