An ambulance driver and a patient were killed in a car crash when the ambulance driver lost control of the vehicle and slammed into an overpass on Southern State Parkway, officials said.
The vehicle was heading eastbound on the Long Island highway when it swerved off the road and struck a brick wall at Eagle Avenue near Exit 18 at around noon, police said.
The ambulance driver, who was only identified as a male, was killed on impact. The male patient who was inside the ambulance was also pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.
An EMT traveling in the back with the passenger was also injured. The EMT was taken to Winthrop Hospital where the person was treated for non-life threatening injuries, including a concussion and broken leg.
