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 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.
