Fiery Ambulance Crash In Texas Kills 3

SAN ANGELO (February 12, 2014) Three people were killed and another was injured when an ambulance veered off a slick road in West Texas and caught fire, authorities said.

The Sterling City ambulance was transporting Jose Cruz Gurrola, 45, on an emergency run early Tuesday to a San Angelo hospital at the time of the crash.

Icy conditions caused the driver to lose control of the ambulance, which veered off the road, overturned and then caught fire, the Texas Department of Public Safety said Wednesday.

Gurrola died at the scene along with his brother, Anacleto Gonzalez Gurrola, 43, who was accompanying him to the hospital.

Also killed was paramedic Raymond Bernard Allison, 52.

The ambulance driver, Joann Adamiak Moore, 45, was taken to a hospital for treatment of what authorities described only as incapacitating injuries.

There was no listing for her at Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo on Wednesday.
