Union County officials are removing an ambulance crew from the county after a train and farm equipment accident on April 19.

A farmer was injured after a train collided with his John Deere sprayer near the town of Cottage Grove.

The man recovered, but the ambulance crew that responded has been criticized for its delay getting him to the hospital.

According to the Liberty Herald, others that were on the scene said the crew took too long to transport the farmer to the hospital.

The ambulance arrived at 10:18 a.m., and did not leave the scene with the patient until 10:35 a.m.

The Rural Metro ambulance crew apparently had delays due to patient identification and which hospital to go to because it involved workman’s compensation.

Union County commissioners decided to remove the Rural Metro ambulance crew from the county.
