Sunman Rural Fire Department
(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Private services will be held for a former Sunman firefighter who died this past weekend.
Cody Medley, 22, was one of two Indianapolis EMS emergency medical technicians who were killed when their ambulance was struck by another vehicle Saturday in Indianapolis. He had been a firefighter with the Sunman Rural Fire Department prior to moving to Indianapolis in 2010.
A private memorial for Cody Medley will be held on Friday, IEMS announced Monday.
A large scale public memorial for both Medley and fellow EMT Tim McCormick will be held Wednesday at Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University.
Meanwhile, the driver of the car that hit Medley’s ambulance has not been charged. It’s unclear if Jade Hammer had been drinking prior to the crash. A police officer said he smelled alcohol on Hammer, 21, at the scene, but two medics said they did not.
Hammer reportedly told officers at the crash scene that she had one-and-a-half mixed drinks before the accident in which she ran a traffic light and hit the ambulance.
Results of a blood test for alcohol are pending. The Indianapolis Municipal Police Department is expected to hand the case over to the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office Tuesday.
