Class C Assault on EMS providers triggers brief police pursuit in Thomaston
THOMASTON — A high speed police pursuit that started in Thomaston on Tuesday morning was soon called off as the risk of serious injury to others became too high. Within hours after a head-on collision on Main Street jumpstarted a very busy day for Thomaston PD, Sgt. Chris Hansen and Thomaston EMS were called to the parking lot behind the Business Block for a report of a person passed out in a parked vehicle. The man was conscious and breathing after emergency personnel arrived. However, the man tried to provide an obviously false name to Hansen. According to Hansen, as Hansen attempted to ween the correct name from the individual, a paramedic was standing at the open driver’s side door while an EMT was standing at the opposite door. The man then started the silver Audi and sped off, allowing the door to hit the medic in the leg and ribs; the other side of the car hit and bruised the EMT. Both now have bruises and abrasions, but are otherwise fine, according to Hansen.
