Nineteen-Year-Old Ambulance Driver Faces Vehicular Homicide Charges in Lethal Crash

John Walker was the ambulance driver involved in a deadly crash along a busy southwest Atlanta roadway on Monday. Walker seems to have caused the crash. According to Walker’s lawyer, Walker had been working for the company less than a month and was still in training. Walker is nineteen years old. He is charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, speeding, and failure to maintain lanes. Walker turned himself in to the Fulton County Jail on Thursday.

The families of those who were killed in the crash might be comforted knowing that Walker “is extremely sad” about the deaths. The name of Walker’s lawyer is Jackie “The Fly Lawyer” Patterson. Patterson is quoted as saying that: “his client expresses regret for that day and wishes he could change what happened, but can only move forward to face the consequences.”

As reported, a Pro Care EMS medical transport van and an SUV were involved in the crash that happened in the 4000 block of Campbellton Road. Walker’s 32-year-old co-worker and the driver of the SUV were killed in the crash. For more information on the deadly crash this past Monday, see here. “An employee with ProCare declined to comment on the incident when reached by phone Monday evening.”

The FOX 5 Atlanta report informs that “Residents near the crash site says that stretch of road is notoriously dangerous with drivers sometimes going twice the posted 35 mph speed limit.” The Atlanta Police Department‘s Accident Investigations Unit is looking into the circumstances of the incident as the investigation continues. Walker is expected to make his first appearance on Friday afternoon.
