Local news reports that the incident occurred on Thursday morning. Ayres, 57, was driving a Central EMS ambulance with lights and siren activated. Ayres was in the turn lane, and a tractor-trailer had come to an abrupt stop to allow the ambulance to pass. A Ford Mustang had followed the tractor-trailer too closely and swerved into the turn lane to avoid a crash. The Ford Mustang struck the ambulance head-on. Ayres was transported to Wellstar North Fulton Hospital, where she died of her injuries. Blanco Fermin Rodolfo, the driver of the Ford Mustang, was also taken to the same hospital in critical condition. Ayres was the wife of Forsyth County Deputy Sheriff Tony Skindzier. They have two children.
