Clark County sheriff's officials say four people were taken to the hospital after an ambulance was hit by a car north of Neillsville.

Police say two EMTs in the back of the ambulance received minor injuries. They say the driver of the ambulance was not hurt. The two EMTs in the back of the ambulance, along with the driver of the car and a passenger, were taken to a nearby hospital. Authorities say all injuries appeared to be non-life threatening.

Investigators say Colby, who is from Loyal, was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
