A black F-150 crashed into the ambulance which most likely resulted in the death of the patient inside. The pickup truck was traveling west on Bissonnet. The Houston Fire Department was traveling south on Woodfair. The ambulance had its lights and sirens on while traveling. The man inside the ambulance who died was a heart attack patient. The paramedics were treating the man suffering from a heart attack inside the vehicle.
