The Sangamon County coroner says a Springfield woman died of trauma suffered when the car she was driving was hit by another vehicle… and a second crash involving the ambulance she was in does not appear to be a contributing factor in her death.
Amanda Poole’s car was struck on the driver’s side after police say she pulled out in front of an approaching pickup truck. Coroner Cinda Edwards says that crash caused injuries that proved to be fatal.
Paramedics were working on Poole in the ambulance when it crashed head-on with another vehicle while en route to the hospital, but Edwards says there’s no direct link between that crash and Poole’s death. An autopsy was performed Monday, although toxicology tests are still pending.
