The ambulance was headed to a call and had its lights and sirens on when 50-year-old Kenneth Dixon of Sun Valley hit it, as the ambulance entered the intersection of North McCarran Boulevard and the southbound U.S. 395 onramp.

Dixon died after being taken to a hospital.

The Reno Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Team is leading the investigation, saying it doesn’t appear alcohol or speed were factors.
