A man has been bailed after a paramedic died when the ambulance she was driving hit a tree in the New Forest.
The woman, 42, died at the scene along with an 88-year-old patient, who has not been named.
Another crew member and a relative of the patient suffered serious injuries in the crash on the A337 Brockenhurst to Lyndhurst road on Friday.
A 25-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving, was bailed until 29 July.
A South Central Ambulance Service NHS Trust spokesman said the ambulance was on its way to Southampton General Hospital when the crash happened at about 09:35 BST.
The arrested driver, who was in a blue Seat Alhambra, was uninjured.
A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said it was appealing for witnesses who saw either vehicle in the Lymington or Brockenhurst areas.
