Ambulance service suing Cross County for alleged contract breach

CROSS COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Cross County is being sued by an ambulance service for a breach of contract after the county judge placed another service in the rotation.

A 3 year contract was signed between Southern Ambulance of Wynne and Cross County in 2012 that stated that service would have exclusive rights to Cross County.

That contract ended in March of this year.

There were 2 extensions available in the contract, but the county chose not to extend the contract for another 3 years.

County Judge Donnie Sanders placed another ambulance service, Ambulance Services of Forest City LLC, into the rotation with 911 dispatchers in March.

Southern Ambulance is now suing Cross County for both breach of contract and intentional interference with contractual relations.
