    Three people were sent to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries after an ambulance carrying a patient overturned on Interstate 94 near mile marker 39, according to Berrien County Sheriff's Office.

    Deputies responded to the scene at 4:48 p.m. after receiving reports of a single vehicle accident involving a Pride Care Ambulance. The ambulance was in the process of transporting a 69-year-old Watervliet woman to Spectrum Lakeland Hospital in St. Joseph when the driver of the ambulance, 21-year-old Kyle Robertson of Bangor, lost control in the slush and snow, causing the vehicle to roll over.

    Interstate 94 westbound was closed for approximately one hour. Assisting on the scene were Watervliet Township police and fire along with Coloma Township and Pokagon Tribal police.
