i think he should be charged in some form for assisting in the death of the driver who died. now potentially we dont know wether if he interfered long enough to cause her death ultimately. but the sheer fact he did interfere and violate a active scene, involuntary manslaughter and a review of his medical license is in call.
If only that were true.Any 16 year old fresh out of driver's training knows when you see emergency vehicles blocking the road you don't drive around them on the shoulder.
in your perspective. i flew these ops for 7 years... just how long did he interfere.... those little bits of time even for a airborne lifeline op can mean life or death. you dont call Airmed unless its that critical or dire need of airmed....where a ground unit is either too far remote or when a ground unit cannot rapidly enough get a imminent death patient to emergency facilities and a life could be saved.Complete exaggeration of the facts at hand.
Charges issued were appropriate.
"routinely"? meaning he has no value of a emergency situation or an area cordoned off for E-ops. willing to bet his little PA License gives him a sense of "Authority" to bypass active scenes, when it doesn't. PD and first responders are on scene, had no first responders been present, then yes, his medical knowledge could help.... but with multitudes of people with FAR Superior training and FAR higher authority than he has, he had NO RIGHT to violate that scene because he has a Medical License. his ignorance caused someone to die, whether it be directly his fault or indirectly related to the delay he caused.When Allen was handcuffed, he asked, “What's this all about?” then blurted out that he passes emergency vehicles routinely.
