An ambulance crashed into a jackknifing tractor-trailer early Thursday morning in southern Georgia, killing both paramedics and the patient.
Georgia State Patrol said the ambulance, driving eastbound on Ga. 32 in Irwin County, activated its siren and lights when it approached the tractor-trailer and a passenger car going the opposite direction at about 5 a.m.
"The passenger car began pulling off the roadway to yield to the approaching ambulance," said State Patrol spokeswoman Franka Young. "The tractor-trailer jackknifed across the center line and into the path of the ambulance."
Driver Teresa Ann Davis, 44, and second paramedic Randall Whiddon, 56, were killed, as was their patient, Charles Arvin Smith, 65.
The State Patrol's Specialized Crash Reconstruction Team investigation will determine if the truck driver, Rockwell Lott, will face charges.
