WEST JEFFERSON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say an off-duty police officer has died after the vehicle she was driving collided head-on with an ambulance in central Ohio.

The State Highway Patrol says 53-year-old Marcia Frederick of the Columbus Police Department was pronounced dead Tuesday at the scene of the crash in Madison County.

Troopers were called to the crash on state Route 142 shortly before 2:30 p.m. They say Frederick's southbound black SUV had traveled left of the center line, striking a northbound Jefferson Township Medic Squad vehicle.

The two medics in the ambulance were injured and taken to a hospital. Two people inside the ambulance who were being transported for treatment were also taken to a hospital. Additional details on their injuries and conditions weren't immediately available.

The patrol says it's investigating the crash.
