Ambulance on non-emergency call when deadly crash happened

LAS VEGAS - The medical attendant killed in an ambulance crash late Monday night has been identified as Garry John, 57, an employee who had been with the company for four years.

The patient who was killed has yet to be identified.

Scott White, regional director of AMR and Medic West said, John was friendly and will be "sorely missed."

The ambulance crashed and rolled into a rocky embankment while on a curve from the I-15 northbound to 215 westbound.

The vehicle was on a non-emergency call to move a patient between facilities. The Nevada Highway Patrol says the driver lost control on the wet road.

"At 11:48 p.m., we heard a Mayday call over the radio twice," White said.

It was the driver calling in about the crash. 

NHP responded the crash. White said, their handling of the crash and the escort of the bodies to the coroner's office was "very touching."
