A 15-year Charleston, South Carolina EMS Paramedic was seriously injured Saturday when a vehicle pulled out in front of his quick response motorcycle, local blog SConfire.com and other local media reports.

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.
