Ambulance driver's road rage leads to suspended credentials

KINGSTON, Wash. (AP) — Health officials have indefinitely suspended the license of a former EMT for North Kitsap Fire & Rescue who drove recklessly with a patient who'd had a possible stroke.

The Kitsap Sun reports the Department of Health determined Glen N. Rotsten's actions on Jan. 28, 2015, were unsafe and delayed treatment.

A department order says Rotsten tailgated a vehicle that cut in front of the ambulance.

Rotsten did not respond to a statement of charges that the department issued in May.

His employment with North Kitsap Fire and Rescue ended in March and his license was suspended June 23.

Assistant Chief Rick LaGrandeur said Rotsten had worked for the agency since 1994.
