An elderly woman has been killed in a car collision physically involving an ambulance in Staffordshire, England. The incident occurred when the woman and her female passenger, travelling in a Ford Ka, crashed into a West Midlands Ambulance Service vehicle that was flashing its full emergency lights. The crash occurred at approximately 15.15 GMT at the junction of Quarry Hills Lane and Tamworth Road. An air ambulance subsequently arrived at the scene and took the 72-year-old passenger to a hospital; she suffered included damage to her chest and her head. The driver of the Ford was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. It is believed that icy road conditions were not a factor of the collision.

A spokesperson for Staffordshire Police said that : "the woman driver of the Ka was pronounced dead at the scene. Her female passenger was airlifted to Selly Oak Hospital in Birmingham, suffering from head and chest injuries. The male driver of the ambulance vehicle was taken to Stafford Hospital after suffering minor injuries."

Assistant Chief Ambulance Officer Keith Prior from West Midlands Ambulance Service also spoke about the incident. "All our thoughts are with the families of all of those involved in this tragic crash. We have launched an internal investigation to examine the circumstances of this incident," said Prior. "We have already been working with our colleagues in Staffordshire Police and this will continue."
