We regret to pass on that a Texas Paramedic has been killed in the Line of Duty and another was seriously hurt after their ambulance plowed into the side of an 18-wheeler Wednesday night in Hunt County.
The crash happened just before 1900 on US Highway 69 just north of Greenville when the big rig was backing out of a private drive onto US 69. The ambulance, belonging to the UT East Texas Health System, was coming southbound and was not able to stop and it wound up underneath the side of the truck.
The Paramedic driving the ambulance died at the scene. The other paramedic was taken to a Tyler hospital via air ambulance in serious but stable condition. There were no patients in the bus at that time. More to follow. Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
