The Georgia State Patrol said an ambulance driver may have been under the influence when he got into a wreck that killed a patient he was transporting at the time.
On Nov. 12 around 7 p.m., Kevin T. McCorvey, 34, was behind the wheel of a 2007 Ford Econoline Prime Care EMS ambulance in Fairburn when he hit the road’s shoulder, went into a ditch and overturned the vehicle.
Wilton Thomason, the 66-year-old patient who was unrestrained and in the ambulance in a non-emergency capacity, passed away from injuries suffered in the crash, WAGA-TV reported.
McCorvey was booked into the Fulton County Jail and faces charges of DUI, second-degree homicide by vehicle, failure to maintain lane, and possession of an open container. He was being held without bond.
