The air ambulance that crashed into the side of a building in northern California last week has not been returned to the scene, despite the fact that the crew is not required to do so.
The air unit, which was transporting patients to the hospital when it crashed, was in poor condition, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
It was not immediately clear whether the air ambulance had been inspected for damage.
The department said in a statement: “Due to the nature of the crash, we are unable to confirm if the air unit has been inspected.
We have not received a formal complaint, but will continue to investigate the crash.”
In September, the air ambulances crashed at the edge of the California mountains.
It is unclear if the crash happened because of the poor conditions or if it was a result of poor training and equipment.
