BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Two people were injured after an ambulance collided with a dump truck on Friday morning. It happened at 6th Avenue South and 6th Street South in Birmingham.

Matt Russell with the Birmingham Fire and Rescue says an ambulance driver and a public works employee collided. Both drivers were taken to the hospital complaining of neck and back injuries. Two paramedics were working in the back of ambulance. They were thrown around during the wreck but not injured.

The paramedics were transporting the subject of a death investigation at 211 Roosevelt Court SW.

Lt. Sean Edwards with Birmingham PD says they responded to call of a three-month-old baby girl who was deceased. Paramedics were transporting the baby when ambulance wrecked.

Another ambulance arrived at the wreck and continued taking the child to the hospital where the child was pronounced dead. The Jefferson County Coroner's Office identified the child as Lamaria Morrow.

Foul play is not suspected in the girl's death. Edwards says they believe it was an "emergency medical condition." He says the child was not breathing Friday morning so the parents called 911.

She was still not breathing when the ambulance crashed and did not die from injuries sustained in wreck. Edwards says she was already deceased, but was officially declared dead at the hospital. Edwards says the child would not have survived, even if the ambulance had not wrecked.

"Most of the family are still at the hospital. Anytime you have the news or you experience the loss of a loved one, specifically a child, it's detrimental on parents and those connected to the child. Our prayers go out to the family," Edwards said.
