2 Georgia medics, patient killed in ambulance crash with semi

Two medics and a patient died Thursday morning when their ambulance crashed into a tractor-trailer that was headed in the opposite direction jackknifed across the center lane and into oncoming traffic, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Another car pulled over to yield to the ambulance, which caused the tractor-trailer to jackknife, Georgia State Patrol spokeswoman Franka Young told the paper. The accident occurred on Ga. 32 in Irwin County, which is reportedly 190 miles south of Atlanta.

The State Patrol says the patient was 65-year-old Charles Arvin Smith of Tifton. The emergency medical technicians were identified as 44-year-old Teresa Ann Davis of Axson, who was driving the ambulance, and 56-year-old Randall Whiddon of Ashburn.
