Crash with ambulance kills driver in central Ohio

NEWARK, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in central Ohio say a collision with an ambulance killed a 93-year-old car driver and sent four more adults to hospitals.

Police in Newark tell The Advocate newspaper (http://ohne.ws/VlUmDT ) the car was pulling out of a gas station when it collided with the ambulance. The driver died at the scene.

Assistant Fire Chief Patrick Connor says the private ambulance was transporting a patient at the time but wasn't using its sirens or lights.

Connor says a female emergency medical technician riding in the back of the ambulance was flown to a Columbus hospital. He says the ambulance driver, patient and another passenger were taken to a different hospital with injuries that didn't appear to be life-threatening.

Police were seeking security video footage to further review what happened.
