A West Virginia EMT died in the Line of Duty after a crash in Lewis County this morning. EMT Mark Anthony Kinder, a 26-year old of JanCare EMS, died after the ambulance he was riding in was involved in that crash on Interstate 79 south, near mile marker 97. A tractor trailer and the ambulance collided around 0500 but exactly how/why has not been released yet. The paramedic who was driving the ambulance was treated for injuries and released. EMT Kinder was taken to Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital where he later died. There were no patients in the ambulance at the time of the accident. Our condolences to all affected. RIP.
