COLUMBIA, Mo. — A Missouri paramedic is home after a fatal ambulance crash in July left him and an EMT seriously injured.

Van-Far Paramedic Jason Bostic left the rehabilitation center after he was involved in a deadly ambulance crash on the Fourth of July, KOMU reported.

Bostic and EMT Leslie Dahl were severely injured when their ambulance was struck head-on by an SUV. The driver of the SUV was killed in the crash.

“I can’t express the love that has been poured out to these two,” Van-Far EMS administrator Wendy Hull said. “I’m just overwhelmed by all of it.”

A procession including ambulances and troopers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol led Bostic back to his home in Vandalia.
