FORREST COUNTY (WDAM) - Forrest County authorities are continuing to investigate the crash of a AAA ambulance Wednesday night that sent its crew to the hospital.

Capt. Nick Calico, chief investigator with the Forrest County Sheriff's Department, said Thursday that the ambulance, which struck a tree on Cross Creek Road around 8:30 p.m., was on its way to an ATV accident on private property nearby when the wreck happened.

Both crew members in the ambulance were sent to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Their names have not been released, and their current conditions are unknown.

Calico said their ambulance was a back-up unit that was responding to the ATV wreck.

He said the other ambulance that was sent ended up transporting one injured person to the hospital.

Calico said the victim was a female, but did not know the extent of her injuries.
