A patient being transported with flu-like symptoms was killed Tuesday when the ambulance crashed and overturned near Arlington, Ga.
"The ambulance got in the northbound land to pass the farm equipment as it entered into the northbound lane to pass the tractor, the farmer decided to make a left turn," GSP Investigator John Vanlandingham told WALB reporters.
That's when the two collided, and the ambulance veered off the road and overturned. The paramedics and the farm worker were OK, the station reported.
"The patient was fine initially but upon impact and with the overturning of the ambulance was tossed around in the back of the ambulance," the trooper told the media.
Leila Duvall, 84, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the ambulance was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
The investigation is continuing.
