SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) — Three people were killed and one was injured on Tuesday when an ambulance careened off a slick West Texas roadway and caught fire, authorities said.
The Sterling City ambulance was transporting Jose Cruz Gurrola, 45, on an emergency run early Tuesday to a hospital. The Texas Department of Public Safety said Wednesday that icy conditions caused the ambulance to lose control, veer off the road and flip upside down before catching fire.
Gurrola died at the scene along with Anacleto Gonzalez Gurrola, 43, who was accompanying his brother to the hospital.
Also killed was paramedic Raymond Bernard Allison, 52. The driver, Joann Adamiak Moore, 45, was taken to a hospital for treatment of "incapacitating injuries."
