In Torbalı, Hasan Şenoğul (37), who is employed at an
iron-woodworking workshop, lost his arm to an iron-
cutting machine nicknamed 'monster' the day before
yesterday while working at his home. His neighbor put
him in a car with license plate number 35 TPA 87 in order
to take him to Izmir Atatürk Training and Research Hospital.
However, when the vehicle reached Metropolis Avenue it
hit one Fatma Kara who was trying to cross the street.
Having already lost quite a bit of blood, Şenoğul was
transferred to a 112 Emergency Services ambulance bearing
plate number 35 RE 112. But the ambulance carrying Şenoğul
was then hit on the side by a car, plate number 35 AY 5753,
driven by A.H. (62), at the Torbalı-Bayındır intersection.
The force of the impact hurled the ambulance onto the median
strip, injuring ambulance driver Musa Ünal, emergency aid
technician Mehtap Aktepe and emergency medical technician
Süleyman Peraçiaraç. The driver of the car, A.H., and passenger
Necmi Necati Hızlı were also injured.
After being involved in two accidents en route to the hospital,
Şenoğul was put into yet another ambulance and finally reached
Izmir Atatürk Training and Research Hospital where he was
operated on. As for the other six people involved in the two
accidents, their treatment is continuing and their conditions are
said to be good.
