A 28-year-old man is dead and two Dallas Fire-Rescue medics were hospitalized after a crash early Sunday in west Oak Cliff, officials say.
The ambulance was traveling west on West Davis Street about 3:15 a.m. to respond to a medical emergency when a pickup truck going south on North Westmoreland Road went through a red light and crashed into the ambulance, police said.
The pickup driver as well as two medics in the ambulance had to be extricated from the wreckage, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said. All three were taken to a hospital.
The pickup driver, who was identified as Luis Cabrera, died of his injuries at the hospital, police said.
The medic who was driving the ambulance is OK and was released from the hospital about 7 a.m., Evans said.
The medic in the passenger seat suffered more serious injuries and was admitted to the hospital for ongoing treatment and observation. The medic's condition had improved Sunday night, but he remained hospitalized, Evans said.
