Two IEMS Paramedics Killed On the Job

Steve Wagner

The Indianapolis medical community is grieving after losing two of its own last weekend in a tragic on-the-job ambulance crash. You can follow continuing updates to this story from the Indy Star.

Two IEMS paramedics have passed away after this crash; one (Timothy McCormick, 24) was killed at the scene of the accident and the other (Cody Medley, 22) passed away after remaining in critical condition at Wishard Memorial Hospital for several hours.

The ambulance the two men were in was heading southbound on Senate Avenue early on Saturday morning when it is believed that a car that was heading west on St. Clair St. ran through a flashing red light, striking the ambulance in the side. The ambulance was turned onto its side and slid into another car that was parked on the side of the road.

According to the police report, the driver of the other car was 21-year-old Jade Hammer, a recent Indianapolis transplant from Florida. She said she had only had 1 ½ drinks that she described as “not strong”, and speculation is that she might have been distracted because she was still unfamiliar with the area and was using her GPS to determine her location.

There is so much emotion surrounding this accident, because the IEMS team describes themselves as a “family” and they say it now feels like part of their family is missing. The huge hole that has been left by this accident is heartbreaking to so many because of the inspiring lives that these two young men led. These two men had dedicated their lives to saving the lives of others and their co-workers recognize that the sacrifice they made in the line of duty was a great one. They will truly be missed by the entire Indianapolis community, and especially by those who were closest to them.
