Police say 66-year-old Deanna Mills of Hymera was crossing the highway from a county road when she failed to stop. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 86-year-old ambulance patient was flown to an Indianapolis hospital for suspected internal injuries suffered in the wreck and his original health problem. The driver, a paramedic and a nurse aboard the ambulance were taken to Sullivan County Community Hospital for treatment.
