An ambulance with emergency lights and sirens activated was struck head-on early Tuesday by a car that went into the oncoming lane to pass another driver in Beaver Township.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said William J. Robb, 48, of Lowellville, was driving at about 12:45 a.m. northbound on state Route 164 in Beaver Township when he passed a car by driving in the opposite lanes.

When he pulled into the oncoming lanes, he struck a Life Fleet ambulance driven by Lori Dalonzo, who was en route to picking up a patient with emergency lights and sirens activated.

Robb suffered non-life threatening injuries and Dalonzo was unharmed, OSHP said.

Troopers are still investigating the crash.
