BOONE, Iowa - A Carroll County paramedic has been given a suspended 10-day jail sentence for the way he drove an ambulance that ran into a semitrailer, killing another paramedic and a patient.

Robert Genzen, of Manning, was injured in the May collision, as was another paramedic. The trucker was not seriously hurt.

Des Moines television station KCCI says Genzen won't have to serve the 10 days if he successfully completes probation.

Boone County prosecutor Daniel Gonnerman says Genzen should have slowed down much sooner as he attempted to pass the semi on the right on U.S. Highway 30 near Beaver in Boone County.

Genzen's attorney, Scott Rhinehart, says the judge's decision will be appealed.
