    Default Ambulance Accidents

    Does anyone have a link to the story of the paramedic from the Cleveland/Lorain area that went to prison for an ambulance crash a few years back?

    Thanks!!

    I found THIS LINK that says his name is Mike Montecalvo, but the story doesn't sound right. That link says he was transporting a patient when he was involved in the accident.

    I was thinking the story was that he was RESPONDING to an accident with reported people trapped or ejected or major injuries, or something like that, when the accident happened. If it's the one I'm thinking of, there were either no injuries or minor injuries and they just wanted the crews to get there quicker so they exaggerated......


    Also found THIS LINK to an article in Fire Engineering (Sorry, WT), that references it. You have to scroll down to the Emergency Medical Dispatch section about 3/4 of the way down.

    I tried to do a search using the name listed in the 1st section, but didn't have any luck......... Then again, I need ot get to bed, too, so I'm kinda rushed.......

    77 is right, his name is Mike Montecalvo. He worked for Life Care Ambulance of Lorain Co. at the time of the accident. I also recall the same version as 77 (except I do think there was a fatality of a Pregnant female). He puts on a powerful preseentation called "When God Blinks" that talks about driving, EMD, and the consequences of losing his livlihood. I am not a computer guru by any means...my 4 year old may be able to do a search though...and I came up empty as far as a web site for him. If you have an organization wishing to get him as a speaker, I may be able to help you out there. If you ever get a chance to see/hear him...do it!!. Hope that answered a few questions.

    Do you have any contact info for him? Could you email or PM me with whatever info you can get?
