Ambulance crashes on slushy stretch of highway near El Dorado

Authorities say an ambulance has crashed on a slushy stretch of Interstate 35 near El Dorado in central Kansas.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the driver lost control around 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday as the area was under a winter weather advisory.  The crash report says the driver then overcorrected and struck the barrier wall and the guard rail.

The ambulance driver went to a hospital with a suspected minor injury.  No mention was made in the report of a patient in the ambulance.

The patrol says a tractor-trailer also was involved in the wreck.  That driver had no apparent injury.
