NEW YORK — An off-duty Brooklyn paramedic was killed on Thursday when her motorcycle struck a parked truck and caught fire.
Maimonides Medical Center Paramedic Christina Gardini, 27, sustained severe burns in the crash, according to the New York Post. A medical examiner’s report on her exact cause of death is pending.
The truck was double-parked about two blocks from where Gardini lived and was unoccupied at the time of the collision.
A cousin told the New York Post that Gardini was “a beautiful girl” who had “just got everything in her life together” and that her family is devastated by the loss.
