Jogger waits 48 minutes for ambulance

A JOGGER hit by a car had to wait 48 minutes for an ambulance to take him just 1km to hospital.

No ambulance was available locally to take the accident victim the short journey to Letterkenny General Hospital, Co Donegal, so instead an ambulance was sent from Carndonagh, 60km away.

The incident happened on Letterkenny's Port Road.

Witnesses said several emergency calls were made but as no ambulances were available locally the crash victim had to wait.
