MAPLE GROVE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- UPDATE:
Lansing City Councilwoman Carol Wood says her nephew was injured in the crash. Wood posted to facebook, saying her nephew Rick Hallman was riding in the ambulance as part of his job with MMR. She says Hallman suffered a broken vertebrae and serious injuries to his arm. He was in surgery earlier in the day.

Michigan State Police say injuries are reported after an ambulance collided with another vehicle and went off a bridge over a creek.
The Associated Press now reporting that an ambulance apparently ran a stop sign and hit a car on a rural Michigan bridge.
The crash killed the car's driver and sent the ambulance tumbling off the bridge into waist-deep water, authorities said. The two emergency workers in the ambulance were hospitalized in serious condition after the crash, which happened shortly before 6:30 a.m. near the border of Maple Grove and Albee townships, about 70 miles northwest of Detroit.

Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel said that the department sent a dive team to the bridge, which crosses Misteguay Creek. He says state police are in charge of the investigation. Firefighters from Maple Grove and Albee townships also responded.
