The paramedic was responding to a call at the time of the accident. He was thrown from the motorcycle, suffering multiple traumatic injuries. An ambulance was responding directly behind the motorcycle and witnessed the accident, rendering mmediate aid and transporting the 43-year-old to the Medical University of South Carolina.
