2 dead, 2 injured in crash involving ambulance along Campbellton Road
ATLANTA - Two people have died after an SUV and ambulance collided on a southwest Atlanta road Monday afternoon. Another two people were hospitalized.
The crash happened on the 4000 block of Campbellton Road. SKYFOX 5 flew over the scene just after 3 p.m.
When first responders arrived, the Pro Care EMS medical transport van was stopped in the middle of the road. Its passenger-side door was broken off.
The SUV was flipped on its side in the grass alongside the road. It appeared to have struck a tree.

Although it appeared the airbags deployed in both vehicles, Atlanta Police confirmed the driver of the SUV and an occupant inside the ambulance died as a result of the accident.
The ambulance driver and a patient inside sustained injuries and are receiving medical treatment.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner confirmed that one of the victims was a 32-year-old employee with the ambulance company.
Neighbors say the stretch of road is notoriously dangerous.
"People do fly down the road. I stay on this side street right here and people go 50 down the street," said Sharonia Kennedy, who lives nearby.

"We just have to be a little more patient out here on these roads," Kennedy said. "Make sure we all stay safe."
An employee with ProCare declined to comment on the incident when reached by phone Monday evening.
