Illinois Supreme Court affirms immunity for emergency medical services to third parties

A privately-employed ambulance driver was transporting a patient from a hospital to a nursing home on a non-emergency basis. The ambulance driver did not use the ambulance’s emergency lights or sirens during transport. The ambulance was in a motor vehicle accident, and the other driver suffered injuries. Is the ambulance driver liable for the other driver’s injuries?
