    Driver intentionally rams ambulance with his Tundra

    Sacto 9-1-1: Suspect in assault on Redding medical personnel arrested

    ...shortly after 9 p.m., Haller intentionally accelerated his gray 2003 Toyota Tundra toward the ambulance, ramming it in attempt to kill its occupants - all of them medical personnel.

    Not much information provided. Haller will have plenty of time to think about what he did. Dumb.

    Minimal information but I wonder if he was trying to kill one person or just targeting the EMTs in general.

    I vote for a ban on all Tundra trucks.

    If this guy didn't have access to one this would have never occurred.

    He probably called a Suicide Hotline and got transfered to the Middle Eastern call center.

    He told them he was suicidal. They got all excited and asked "Can you drive a truck, specifically a Toyota Tundra?"

    The rest is history.

    Or in reality, he was just a nutcase and angry at the medical profession.

    Too bad the EMT's working on him didn't accidently cut off his airway while doing full body chest compressions on that ass maggot

    It's a Toyota... maybe the throttle stuck? There's your reasonable doubt, right there... ( I know, it was Hondas, but nobody's gonna 'member fer sure)

    Kidding aside... Glad the medicos weren't gravely hurt... too bad I can't say the same for the Tundra driver.
    It could be worse.

    At the very least they should be allowed no more than two tires and those only inflated to 10 lbs. I'd also like to see a limit on the number of cylinders - Assault trucks with V10's should definitely be illegal. Even six cylinders should be limited to those who can demonstrate a need.

    Some more of the story: This guy is a serious troublemaker. What is "suspicion of battering a police officer"? Sounds like something thats peculiar to CA.

    UPDATED: Cottonwood man tried to kill paramedics by crashing into ambulance, police say » Redding Record Searchlight

    Haller also was arrested by Tehama County deputies in November on suspicion of battering a peace officer while deputies conducted a welfare check on him at his Cottonwood home.

    Around 7:49 p.m. on Nov. 3, two Tehama County deputies were checking on Haller's welfare when he threw a rock at them, but missed, according to the Tehama County Sheriff's Department.

    Haller also kicked shut a cruiser door as another deputy was trying to get out of the car, deputies said.

    This must have been an 'accidental discharge' of the gas pedal.

    Attempted murder? Yes sir...how many counts?

    Seems they had an earthquake as well... Wonder if that was from the impact?

    Hopefully will be charged with attempted murder. Some slick lawyer will probably get him released to a mental institution though.

    Yes, he's a nut job, no guns for him! He needs to go to "Time Out" for a couple years.

    Calif. Man Accused of Trying to Kill 2 Paramedics, EMT - News - @ JEMS.com

    A Cottonwood man accused of trying to kill two paramedics and an emergency medical technician by ramming his pickup into their ambulance outside Mercy Medical Center on Saturday night expressed disappointment when told no one was killed.
