An ambulance transporting a patient reportedly made contact with another vehicle on an icy U.S. Highway 2 about 7:30 p.m. Friday, lost control and flipped over a guard rail as it approached a bridge spanning the St. Louis River near Brookston.

Two people inside the overturned ambulance were subsequently hospitalized and a third was killed. No one inside the other vehicle, a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, was injured.

The identities of those involved were not released Friday, pending notification of relatives.
