SAND SPRINGS, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a woman who fled a stopped ambulance was killed when she was struck by a vehicle on the Sand Springs Expressway.

Troopers told reporters that 47-year-old Kelly Nails was being taken to a hospital Friday when she began fighting with paramedics and the driver of the Emergency Medical Services Authority ambulance stopped on the expressway, which is also U.S. Highway 412. Troopers say Nails jumped from the ambulance and ran across eastbound lanes, then was struck while in the westbound lanes of traffic.

Nails was then taken to a Tulsa hospital where she was dead on arrival.

EMSA spokeswoman Kelli Bruer said no one in the ambulance was injured and police say the driver of the car that struck Nails was not injured.
