A Palestine woman was killed this morning during a head-on collision with an ambulance. The crash happened around 5:45 am on Highway 155 just south of the small town of Pert.
The Department of Public Safety says the ambulance was traveling southbound when it veered into the northbound lane and into a ditch. A second car tried to avoid the ambulance, but also went into the ditch, hitting the ambulance head on.
The driver of that car, identified as 47 year old Lela Granberry, died at the scene. The driver of the ambulance was treated at a local hospital and released.
