JEMS: Fatal Indianapolis Ambulance Crash Claims EMT

Specialist Paramedic Cody Medley died at Wishard Hospital early Sunday morning. Troy Riggs, director of the City of Indianapolis Department of Public Safety stated, "We grieve with our IEMS family as we learn of the passing of Specialist Cody Medley," and “Please keep his family and his friends in your thoughts and prayers."

WISH-TV reports that EMS officials will hold a press conference at 12 p.m. Sunday to talk about Medley's passing.
