FONTANA (AP) — Two people were killed when the car they were in slammed into an ambulance at a San Bernardino County intersection, injuring two firefighters.
County Fire Department spokeswoman Tracey Martinez said Saturday the medic squad was returning to its station in Fontana when the high-speed crash occurred.
Heavy rescue equipment was used to extricate the car from underneath the ambulance. The two occupants of the vehicle were found dead.
Martinez says the two firefighters in the ambulance are hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
The crash is being investigated by Fontana police.
