Police say the driver of the vehicle had the right of way and was in the intersection at the time of the crash.
An EMT died Monday morning when an ambulance transporting a patient was struck by a vehicle.
After the impact, the ambulance rolled on its side and partially ejected EMT Mousa Chaban, of Mishawaka, who was riding in the back. The ambulance then struck a 2013 Dodge Dart on the driver's side, causing it to roll onto its passenger side. The Dodge Dart, driven by 30-year-old Joseph Farrar of Brownsburg, was attempting to turn north onto US 31 from East Ind. 218 and had the right-of-way in the intersection, according to the release.More news: Opec ties to oil allies will stretch through 2019
