DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Authorities in eastern Iowa say one person has died in a head-on collision between an ambulance and a vehicle.

The Thursday morning crash in Davenport involved a Hyundai Tiburon and a medic ambulance. The ambulance was in a non-emergency mode but it was carrying two medics and a patient.

The Quad-City Times (http://bit.ly/1204GHj) reports the Hyundai was traveling east when it crossed the centerline and struck the westbound ambulance.

The driver of the Hyundai was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The others in the ambulance were not injured.

Police have not released the deceased driver's name. Authorities are still investigating what caused the accident.
