BRAGGS, Okla. (AP) — Authorities have released the names of a 6-year-old and a woman killed when their car crashed into an ambulance in Muskogee County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 6-year-old Holden Collins of Muskogee and 32-year-old Carrie Cash of Muskogee died in the collision just after 3 p.m. Tuesday. Another passenger in the car was critically injured.

The driver of the ambulance and a paramedic are hospitalized in stable condition while the patient in the ambulance was flown to a Tulsa hospital in stable condition.

Troopers say the collision occurred on Oklahoma Highway 10 near Braggs when the car driven by Cash crossed the center line and crashed into the oncoming ambulance.
