FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. -- A head-on crash between an ambulance and a car in Fountain Hills has left a woman dead and two other people injured.

Authorities say the female driver of the car was driving in the wrong direction and was killed in the accident Tuesday night.

Rural Metro Fire Department officials extricated the ambulance driver and say that person and a patient are being taken to a Scottsdale hospital with neck and back injuries.

Details of the crash are sketchy but authorities say the accident occurred on State Route 87, which also is known as the Beeline Highway.
