NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) — An ambulance transporting a dialysis patient has crashed in central Indiana, injuring three people and closing State Road 37 for about two hours.

Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputy Bryant Orem says the ambulance apparently hit a slick spot on the highway north of Noblesville Saturday morning and veered off into a wooded ravine, where it struck a tree. Snow was falling in the area Saturday morning.

Orem says police closed the highway for about two hours while investigators studied the accident scene.

He says the ambulance was not on an emergency run when it crashed. The driver, the medic and the patient all were taken to Riverview Hospital in Noblesville, but Orem says their injuries aren't believed to be life-threatening.

Noblesville is about 20 miles north of Indianapolis.
