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.

    Please give the reading public more info Gaby…

    We know the news media does not know what the differance is between an ambulance and a medic squad. How about more detail, like it was a pick-up truck with a light bar on-top?

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    At the corner of Calaveras and N. Park Victoria in Milpitas California two corrupt DEA allmost caused the death of an elderly lady while they where harrassing a suspect.
    The elderly lady was crossing the street about 15 yards ahead of the suspect’s car that was going west bound on Calaveras after having just pulled out of the Shell station. One of the DEA in the bus stop near the Shell station tried to gain the attention of the suspect thereby almost causing the car to hit the elderly lady. The other DEA was at the Shell station.
    They have also recently, on several occasions, entered my home while I was not there so that they can get better access to my vehicle and loosen steering linkages, remove wheel weights, tamper with breaks, tamper with transmission linkages, etc… Every time I detect that they have entered my home, my dog looks like he is not feeling well. Why take my insolence out on a dog?
    They are also shooting BB guns at my car while driving. One instance they shot a BB gun at my car in a very busy intersection of highways 680&101 while I was traveling 55+ mph.
    They have been harrassing me for 20 years.
    The DEA is part of the problem and not solution. Apart from being the proxy force for the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and the NSA, they have been a failure since Nixon’s inception. The DEA could benefit from a large buget cut and employee rift to remove the corrupt ones.
