OCILLA, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia State Patrol officials say a tractor trailer involved in a fatal crash with an ambulance in south Georgia jack-knifed as a car ahead of it was pulling off the road.

Authorities say the accident earl this morning killed 56-year-old Randall Whiddon and 44-year-old Teresa Ann Davis. The two were Coffee County EMTs. A 65-year-old patient riding in the back of the ambulance, Charles Arvin Smith, also was killed.

Authorities say the ambulance had its lights and siren on at the time of the crash. Police have identified the truck driver as Rockwell Lott, of Tifton. It's not clear if he was injured.

Whiddon's son, Ben, says his father worked part-time in Coffee and Irwin counties, and is former Turner County EMS director and fire chief.
