    Mechanic crushed at ambulance depot

    A mechanic is in a critical condition in hospital after being reportedly crushed while working at an ambulance depot in Dundee.

    The incident took place at a Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS) depot on West School Road, Dundee, on Friday, March 3 at around 3.25pm.

    Treated for serious injuries

    The Evening Telegraph has reported that the man has been named locally as Scott Robinson, 26 from Fintry.

    Officers from Police Scotland were called to the scene and the man was taken to Ninewells Hospital and is being treated for serious injuries.

    A force spokeswoman said: “A man was seriously injured in an incident within the grounds of the Scottish Ambulance Service.

    “He has been taken to Ninewells Hospital for treatment. The Health and Safety Executive has been informed and police enquiries are ongoing.”

    Ongoing enquiries

    The newspaper says the injury occurred when a ramp fell on top of the mechanic while he was working on it.

    The SAS has confirmed that an investigation is being carried out by Police Scotland to determine the circumstances that led to the accident occurring.

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has also been informed of the workplace incident.

    An SAS spokesman said: “We are aware of an incident involving a member of staff in Dundee on Friday. HSE has been made aware of the incident and an investigation into the circumstances is ongoing.”

    Stable condition

    The Evening Telegraph reports that the young man’s condition is critical but stable.

    The SAS spokesman added: “At this stage we cannot comment any further on the cause of the incident.

    “In the meantime, we are in close contact with the family of our staff member, who remains in hospital, and are offering support to local staff.”
