Emergency workers prepare to transport Annie Davis, 71, Elizabethton, after her car collided with an ambulance Tuesday morning. According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol’s preliminary report, Davis merged “abruptly” in front of the ambulance, which could not stop in time to avoid collision.

On Tuesday morning, Annie Davis, 71, was taken to Sycamore Shoals Hospital after her 2010 Ford Focus was struck from behind by a Washington County/Johnson City EMS ambulance while traveling west on state Route 67.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol’s preliminary report, Davis’ vehicle “merged abruptly from the right lane” near the intersection of state Route 67 and West G Street.

The merge was so abrupt that the ambulance, driven by Michael Miller, 44, Johnson City, was unable to stop in time to avoid the collision.
