Two people were killed Monday afternoon in an Atlanta crash involving an ambulance whose driver lost control of the vehicle, authorities confirmed.

The wreck occurred in the 4000 block of Campbellton Road at about 1 p.m. when the medical transport vehicle and an SUV collided, police said. NewsChopper2 showed the SUV flipped on its side just off the road in the grass, and the ambulance had damage to its front bumper.

According to police, the ambulance was traveling west when it struck a curb and went out of control. The vehicle then went into oncoming traffic and struck the SUV, police added.

“The investigation into the accident remains ongoing and charges are likely in this case,” police said.

One person in the ambulance and the driver of the SUV were killed, police confirmed. They were identified as 29-year-old Ti’Quita Miles of Covington and 29-year-old Jada Whatley of Atlanta by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The ambulance driver and a patient sustained injuries not considered life-threatening.
