Authorities say a medic has died after a car collided with an ambulance in downtown Indianapolis.

Officials announced 24-year-old Tim McCormick's death at a news conference Saturday.

McCormick was a New York native and attended St. Lawrence University.

Officials say other medic remains in critical condition with severe head injuries.

The accident occurred shortly after 3:30 a.m. a few blocks north of the Indiana Statehouse. Police spokeswoman Sgt. Linda Jackson says the impact caused the ambulance to roll onto its side and slide into an unoccupied parked vehicle, trapping both medics inside.

No one else was in the ambulance, which was not on an emergency run at the time. Officials say it had the right of way.

The other vehicle's driver was taken to the hospital for a blood test.
