Baker said in an email that the wreck happened on Mount Hope Chrurch Road as Campbell approached the intersection of Holts Store Road.

Campbell had her lights and sirens activated at the time of the wreck. 

Baker said no other vehicle was involved and Campbell was the only person in the ambulance. Campbell was uninjured.
