ALBANY -- The Jackson County Floridan has reported that two people died when the southbound car they were traveling in swerved into the path of a northbound Jackson County, Fla. ambulance on State Road 71.

One of them was a native of Albany.

The head-on crash occurred at around 5:35 p.m. Monday near Redwood Drive north of Marianna, the Jackson County Floridan was told by authorities.

A car traveling in front of the ambulance was able to dart out of the way before a white Toyota Camry collided with the ambulance. The ambulance came to rest on its side and had apparently rolled over.

Two ambulance personnel and two individuals from the car were taken to an area hospital for treatment of their injuries. The ambulance crew members were alert and responsive as they were being transported and their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening, the Floridan reported.

One of the deceased was Jevontay Jordan, 19, who was in the Camry. Jordan was traveling from Albany to Florida after visiting family during the Labor Day weekend.

Meadows Funeral Home is handling the arrangements for Jordan.
