A Georgia EMT who set out to deliver supplies to those in Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida was struck and killed along the highway after stopping to help the victims of a car crash.
Logan Wade, and his partner, Nick Daniel, were traveling in a non-emergency vehicle when they noticed an accident and pulled over to render aid, American Medical Response (AMR) DeKalb, Georgia said. At some point, another vehicle came upon the scene and struck both of them.
The incident happened on I-85 in Troup County, Georgia, WTVM reported.
