ODELL, Ill. -- James Ritchie, 30, was struck and killed Thursday by an ambulance that had been called to aid him, county officials said.
Coroner Keith Von Qualen said Ritchie was lying on a rural road southeast of Odell awaiting aid. The ambulance skidded on snow-slick pavement and ran over him, Von Qualen said.
Ritchie also may have been hit by a pickup truck that was following the ambulance, the coroner said.
It was not immediately determined why Ritchie initially needed medical help.
