1 Dead After Ambulance Hits Car, Goes Off Bridge in Michigan: Police

MAPLE GROVE TOWNSHIP, MICH. (AP) - Michigan State Police say the driver of a car has died and two emergency workers are injured after a crash that sent an ambulance off a bridge and into waist-deep water of a creek below.

State police spokesman Lt. David Kaiser says the Mobile Medical Response ambulance was heading back to the station for shift change early Monday when it apparently ran a stop sign in Saginaw County and collided with the car. He says two emergency workers inside were hospitalized in serious condition.

Kaiser says the car's driver 21-year-old Dustin Sharp of Burt died following the crash.

Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel tells WNEM that the department sent a dive team to the bridge, which crosses Misteguay Creek. He says state police are in charge of the investigation. Firefighters from Maple Grove and Albee townships also responded.

An aerial image posted on ABC 12's website showed an ambulance on its side in the water. The crash happened near the border of Maple Grove and Albee townships, about 70 miles northwest of Detroit.
