Video: Hundreds gather to mourn medic killed in crash

EMT Tim McCormick was killed after a car ran a red light and crashed into his ambulance; his partner was also killed


INDIANAPOLIS —  Family, friends, coworkers and scores of emergency responders attended the funeral service for EMS Private Timothy McCormick on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old died early Saturday morning after the ambulance he was driving was hit by a car near the intersection of Senate Avenue and St. Clair.  His coworker, Specialist Cody Medley, also died as a result of the crash.

McCormick’s funeral began with a procession from Crown Hill Cemetery where a visitation had been held Monday afternoon. Dozens of EMS, fire, and police vehicles took part in the procession which ended at the steps of Saints Peters and Paul Cathedral.

Challis Carter Challis Carter Tuesday, February 19, 2013 4:39:25 PM After watching news coverage of the funeral for a fellow Medic, the only thing you felt significant enough to mention was the physique of his pall bearers? You should probably just focus on your own character, because it is clearly out of shape.
