NEWCASTLE, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says four people were injured when an ambulance crashed into a toll booth on an Oklahoma turnpike.
The patrol says investigators are trying to determine if the driver fell asleep. A patrol spokesperson says the Jackson County Emergency Medical Services ambulance crashed into the toll booth near Newcastle shortly before 3 a.m. on Friday.
A patient and two paramedics in the ambulance were flown to an Oklahoma City hospital and the toll booth worker was taken by another ambulance to a hospital. The patrol says the patient and one paramedic were admitted. The second paramedic and the toll booth worker were treated and released.
