WEST OLIVE, Mich. — A paramedic who suffered extensive injuries when a suspected drunk driver struck his ambulance has returned to work almost 18 months later.

In a Facebook post, AMR announced that paramedic Tim Hoffman returned to duty after a long journey to recovery.

 In August 2016, Hoffman and his partner Kevin Jongekryg were trapped in an ambulance when they were struck by a suspected drunk driver.

Hoffman sustained a severe head injury in the crash and had a metal plate placed in his head.

“Almost 18 months and Tim returned to work today!” Hoffman’s dad said in a Facebook post. “We’re very proud of Tim and the hard work it took to get to this point. It’s been a very long road and with God’s help, Tim’s hard work and all of your support and prayers, Tim starts part time with some light duty at AMR."
