Memorial services set for 2 medics killed in crash

Medics Tim McCormick and Cody Medley were killed early Saturday when a driver ran a red light

The Indy Channel

INDIANAPOLIS — The first of two memorial services for two Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services members was scheduled to be held on Monday.

Medics Tim McCormick and Cody Medley were killed early Saturday when a driver ran a red light at the corner of Saint Claire Street and Senate Avenue. The vehicle hit the ambulance and caused it to flip.

The site where McCormick and Medley were involved in a fatal accident has become a memorial for friends and family to mourn.

The growing memorial is adorned with flowers and other tokens.

There will be a public visitation for McCormick Monday, Feb. 18 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Crown Hill Cemetery. 
Friends, family and coworkers are mourning through social media as well.

Both friends and strangers have taken to Facebook to express their condolences through messages and   video tributes  .

In honor of McCormick and Medley, IEMS workers are petitioning to change the names of North Senate Avenue between 11 th Street and West North Street to Medley Street, and West Saint Clair Street between North West Street and North Meridian Street to McCormick Street.

IMES workers invited the public to sign the petition before February 22, 2013.

Friends and family of the two men describe them as kind, outgoing and happy to dedicate their lives to helping others.

Mayor Greg Ballard has requested that all flags be lowered to half-staff. 

Memorial Services
A large-scale memorial for both McCormick and Medley will take place Wednesday, Feb. 20 at 10 a.m. at Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University.

The memorial is open to the public.

A Catholic Mass Service will take place Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 10:30 a.m. at Saints Peter & Paul Cathedral in the 1300 block of North Meridian Street.

A memorial service for Specialist Cody Medley is being finalized.

IEMS is working to take all on-duty personnel out of service on Wednesday for the afternoon memorial, employing multiple aid agreements to provide the appropriate back fill, a media release said.
