ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say an infant remains in critical condition after an ambulance the child was traveling in was struck by a pickup truck in Albuquerque.

Police spokesman Tanner Tixier says the ambulance had its lights and sirens on as it headed south on Tuesday carrying the 1-month-old child, who had been in an incubator. Police say the eastbound truck had entered an intersection through a green light when it struck the ambulance, causing it to roll onto its side.

The baby was extracted from the vehicle and taken to a hospital for emergency surgery.

No other injuries have been reported.

Police say they have not yet decided whether either driver will face charges.
