Mich. EMT killed in double MVA

He was pronounced dead after a second vehicle drove through the rollover accident scene

By FireRescue1 Staff

KALAMAZOO, Mich. — An off-duty EMT was killed after being involved in a rollover accident, then being hit by another vehicle that drove through the scene of the first crash.

The driver reportedly lost control of his vehicle and rolled over the median early Sunday morning.

Four people were inside the vehicle, with at least three getting injured and one being ejected, according to WoodTV.

An off-duty sheriff and a nurse returning from work were at the scene to help the victims.

While tending to the victims, a second motorist lost control of their vehicle in the same area of the road and drove through the first crash scene, striking the sheriff, nurse and two of the passengers from the previous accident.

Trevor Stuck, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene after the second vehicle drove through. The other passengers along with the sheriff and nurse have all been hospitalized with two of the other passengers in critical condition.

The driver of the second vehicle has been taken into custody and did not sustain any injuries.

Ambulance company, PRIDE Care told WoodTV that several of the people in the first crash were employees.

Comstock Fire and Rescue said Stuck was an emergency responder and posted a message of condolence to their Facebook Page.

Tom Sluder Jr. Tom Sluder Jr. Monday, November 19, 2012 2:28:53 PM RIP Trevor. What a sad story. My condolences to the family and friends, and prayers are being said for all those effected, Comstock Fire and Rescue, PRIDE Care, the injured, those trying to help, and anyone that cares about these people. I hope the Lord doesn't call upon any of the other victims. This is why more caution should be used when approaching an accident scene. An unfortunate lesson all of us can take from this.

Tom Sluder Jr. Tom Sluder Jr. Monday, November 19, 2012 3:48:02 PM Wow, thanks for the details. I didn't think there were any emergency vehicles there before the second accident happened. Everyone that drives needs to pay more attention to driving, because we can come up on something like this in no time. Especially when it is foggy and slippery. So many things can/do get us distracted anymore. All around a tragic event. And I can picture them lowering that speed limit back down possibly. Or it should at least be considered. Did you know the driver that lost control and went through the first scene?

Tom Sluder Jr. Tom Sluder Jr. Monday, November 19, 2012 4:17:11 PM Very lucky. Some people have no regard for the safety of others, or even themselves, and that is unfortunate. Glad you are all ok. I hope your Work Family will have the hand of God on their shoulders at this time too. Praying for all of you, from brother to brothers and sisters.
Tim Rouse Tim Rouse Monday, November 19, 2012 7:23:23 PM It is the worst feeling to treat your own on a call, our prayers go out to the crews.
Trice Burgess Trice Burgess Monday, November 19, 2012 9:10:41 PM Prayers for all involved. Tragic event all the way around and another reminder to slow down and try to be more aware of your surroundings at all times when both driving and working highway incidents. God be with the Stuck family, friends and coworkers during this time of loss and sadness. :(

We have the dual responsibility of both taking care of “our own” and taking care of our communities. The men and women of this profession are remarkable, strong, enduring people. We will get through this. We will honor the service of Trevor and the other victims by continuing to care for each other and the communities that we serve. The nature of what we do is to take care of others, and so to be the recipients of the outpouring of support from our communities, as well as from Police, Fire, and EMS has been overwhelming. We are extremely grateful."
