A man being transported by ambulance from Cleveland to Columbus was killed when he was ejected from the vehicle during a crash on I-71 and Ohio 13.

The victim, Michael L. Willis, was being taken from a Cleveland hospital and moved to a Columbus hospital. The ambulance Willis and two others were traveling in smashed through a guardrail and ejected two of the passengers as it rolled several times near the southbound exit ramp of I-71.
