A MN-DOT investigation has determined that a warning light on a East Grand Forks stoplight may not have been working during an accident last week. On November 9th a Red Lake Falls ambulance was involved in an accident while taking a patient to Altru hospital. East Grand Forks Police say the Red Lake Falls Ambulance was driving west on highway 2 with its lights and sirens on. It has been determined that a white flashing light on the signal which tells the ambulance driver the light is changing was burnt out. The investigation showed all the regular signal lights are working properly at the intersection. East Grand Forks Police Chief Mike Hedlund says at the time of the accident the light was red for the abulance entering the intersection and hit the car. And even with the signals and sirens it does not give the ambulance the right away. As of now no one has been sited in the accident.
