Woman faces charges in fatal Mass. ambulance crash

Posted

MILFORD (AP) - A driver accused of running a stop sign and causing an ambulance crash that killed a patient is being charged with negligent motor vehicle homicide.

A spokesman for Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early said Wednesday that Lisa Zemack also faces a charge of driving to endanger in connection with the crash a day earlier in Milford, 40 miles southwest of Boston. Zemack will be summoned to court later.

Police say the patient in the ambulance was 58-year-old Upton resident Karen Scott. They say she died when the ambulance was struck on its right rear bumper by Zemack's car and overturned.

Surveillance video at a nearby pizza shop captured the crash.

There has been no answer at a telephone listing in the name of Zemack, who lives in Framingham. It's unknown if she has an attorney.
