PETERBOROUGH, N.H. — An AMR Paramedic has died after crashing his car Sunday afternoon after leaving work, officials said.

Daniel Murphy, 48, died last evening at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, according to AMR of Nashua.

“This is a difficult time for our entire AMR NH family, and we will need to come together to get one another through it,” the post reads.

“I wish I had the words to ease the sorrow that we are all feeling, but I do not,” it continues. “Dan truly loved his family both at home and at work and he LOVED being a Paramedic. He will be fondly remembered for his dedication to providing exceptional patient care to all he came in contact with.”

Police told the Keene Sentinel Murphy’s 2014 Dodge pickup drifted off the road and crashed into a tree. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Murphy leaves behind his wife, Jenn, an AMR Paramedic, and four children.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help pay for essential items and for holiday gifts for his children.

Funeral arraignments have not been announced.
