(COLUMBUS) - Police say two paramedics and two volunteer firefighters were hurt when an ambulance carrying a dying patient crashed into a sheriff's patrol car in central Indiana.

Columbus police Lt. Matt Myers says the ambulance was taking a 72-year-old female heart attack victim from her home near Edinburgh to a Columbus hospital. Both medics were working to revive the woman, so a firefighter agreed to drive the ambulance.

Myers tells The Republic that the ambulance hit the deputy's car after it stopped to block traffic at an intersection. A firefighter helping the medics and the others in the ambulance were treated at a hospital for their injuries.

The ill woman was taken to the hospital in another ambulance. The county coroner says she died early Tuesday of cardiac arrest.
