HENRYVILLE, Ind. --
Clark County police said one person was killed in a crash involving an ambulance on State Road 160 in Henryville.
The wreck occurred on Wednesday afternoon in the 7600 block of State Road 160 near Munk Road.
Police said Clark County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a home on Fox Road in Henryville at about 2:45 p.m. Wednesday for a welfare check. An ambulance with Clark County EMS responded, as well.
Clark County Sheriff's Maj. Chuck Adams said the ambulance driver lost control taking a curve on State Road 160 and hit a tree head-on.
Maj. Chuck Adams said another emergency worker traveling ahead of the ambulance stopped to help after the crash. Adams said when police arrived, the ambulance driver and other emergency workers were tending to the injured ambulance passenger.
The passenger, an 50-year-old employee of Clark County EMS, died at Scott Memorial Hospital.
"He was out along with the driver of the ambulance and they were tending to the passenger," Adams said.
The 26-year-old female driver was not injured.
An accident reconstruction team spent several hours at the scene trying to determine what caused the ambulance to leave the roadway.
Investigators said they couldn't find any evidence of ice on the road.
The team recovered a "black box" from the ambulance and will use its data to complete the investigation.
Clark County EMS released a statement, saying "It was a tragic accident. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families involved."
