One person is dead following a crash involving a Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District ambulance, according to the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District. 

Fire officials confirmed with ABC10 Saturday that a deadly crash occurred just after midnight Saturday off of Fulton Avenue, just north of Hurley Way. The ambulance was taking someone to the hospital just before the collision.  

Witnesses told ABC10 that a woman was hit twice at around midnight; once by a passenger car and again by the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District ambulence. It's unclear how much time passed between the two collisions. 

Sunny Dhillon, a local shop owner, told ABC10 he knew the woman and her boyfriend, rushed outside when he heard the first crash.

"I came close to (the boyfriend), he calls he says, 'Sonny I lost my life, I lost the love of my life. My girlfriend. He ran over her. I have no one to live for.' I was so heartbroken, I had no words to say. I was shocked."

Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District did not release information about what led to the crash and those involved.

Fire officials said California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers in Sacramento are investigating the crash. ABC10 reached out to the CHP for more information but has not heard back as of publication.
