Same Here that was one of the rudest things I have seen someone say. I am sure this EMT is in pain right now and wishes anyway known that moment in his life had never happened. These ppl work hard each day to save lives and to have you say something so stupid and rude well that makes you a LOWLIFE.

There is no call quota you ignorant piece of trash. It was freak accident. The hardest part of an emergency provider's job is having to see or work on a sick or injured child.

Why were those kids riding on the road? Where were their parents? Did they know where they were? I am not blaming the parents here because I know how kids can easily say.....I am going here but actually go another place and not realize the danger. I am just curious as to why those kids were on the road. Love their hearts. They don't understand danger. I hate this has happened. So many questions. My thoughts and prayers to everyone involved
Sorry

From what I understand those kids were riding their bikes in the middle of the road just before the Ambulance hit them. An I witness saw them and tried to warn traffic there was something in the road. My thoughts and prayers are with all involved May God be with them,

I see a lot of kids and older kids also riding without lights or proper reflectors at night, so sad to hear of this. I saw those kids riding earlier on knox street.

The ambulance, carrying a patient at the time, was being driven by employees of the Knox County Ambulance Service. Troopers say there are no plans for a criminal investigation. Officials with the ambulance service say the driver will likely take a leave of absence, but will not face disciplinary action.

“He probably won't work for two or three weeks, but I mean we've not suspend him due to anything, because we feel like it was a total accident at this time,” says Michael Trent, director of the Knox Co. Ambulance Service.

Many details are still unknown at this point, but ambulance service officials are calling the situation a tragedy, and say they wish to express this statement to everyone affected:

“We're sorry the accident happened, and [we] will all being praying for them as well as our own,” Trent said.

Details from the state police investigation are expected in the coming days.
