WOODFORD COUNTY, Ill. -- One person is dead and two others are injured after an ambulance crashed head-on with a car.

Firefighters responded to the accident on Route 116 between Metamora and Roanoke just after 5pm Wednesday.

A witness tells News 25 he saw an ambulance spinning out of control before hitting a black car. The driver of that car, 64-year-old Galeen Driscoll of Metamora, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Firefighters used the jaws of life to pull two people from the Peru, Illinois ambulance.

The driver, 44 year old Daniel Dempsey, was listed in fair condition at O-S-F St. Francis Medical Center Wednesday night. The passenger, 61-year-old James Zborowski, was treated and released.
