LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Authorities have released the name of a man who was killed in a crash that involved several vehicles, including a Metro EMS ambulance.

The victim was 59-year-old Ronald Marshall Sr., according to Deputy Coroner Scott Russ. The cause of death was blunt force injuries.

MetroSafe said the crash happened at Shanks Lane and Cane Run Road.

Authorities say it happened at about 1:15 p.m. Monday. LMPD spokesperson Dwight Mitchell says officers with LMPD's Second Division responded to the scene at around 1:30 p.m.

Mitchell says a preliminary investigation revealed the ambulance was heading north on Cane Run Road in a "Code 3 manner with its lights and siren on." A patient was being transported, according to Mitchell.

He also said when the ambulance arrived at the intersection of Cane Run Road and Shanks Lane, the light was red. Officials say the ambulance proceeded through the light and collided with a black SUV that was traveling west on Shanks Lane. Marshall was the driver of the SUV.

Mitchell says the SUV then hit two vehicles that were stopped in traffic, as they were headed south on Cane Run Road.

Authorities say Marshall was pronounced dead at the scene.

Three Metro EMS personnel were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Mitchell says the patient that was inside the Metro EMS vehicle was not hurt. A driver of one of the vehicles that was stopped in traffic was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The other driver was not hurt. 

The Louisville Metro Police Traffic Unit is investigating the crash.
