Fort Bragg, N.C. — A paramedic was killed Wednesday night when the ambulance he was riding in hit a tree near Plank Road on Fort Bragg.

Officials have not released the man’s name.

It happened about 10:30 p.m.

The ambulance from Womack Army Medical Center was headed to a call at a parachute drop zone, said Tom McCollum, Fort Bragg spokesman.

The driver lost control of the ambulance as the road surface changed from asphalt to dirt, he said.

The driver was treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center and later released, McCollum said.

The ambulance had not picked up a patient.

Both occupants were civilians, according to a spokeswoman at Womack.
