1 Dead After Collision with Ambulance in Montgomery

A Montgomery man is dead after a fatal crash Sunday morning.

According to Lt. Jarrett Williams with the Montgomery Police Department, at around 1:43 a.m. officers and fire medics responded to the intersection of Vaughn Road and Eastern Blvd. on a two-vehicle collision.

At the scene, officers found  a 2016 Hyundai Sonata with one occupant and a 2017 Ford T250 (the ambulance) with three occupants.

The occupant of the Sonata and the driver and one passenger in the ambulance received non-life threatening injuries and were taken to a hospital for treatment. The other passenger in the ambulance, 54-year-old David Mimm, sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Alabama News Network has learned Mimm was a paramedic employed by Care Ambulance Service. We spoke with Managing Director Kevin Harralson about the loss of one of their own.

“It’s a tough day for all of us, it’s going to be a tough week for all of us. Paramedic Mimm was a long-time employee, a very trusted employee and employee that we will all miss,” Harralson said.

Harralson says grief counselors have been made available to CARE’s employees.

MPD said the initial investigation indicates the 2016 Hyundai Sonata was traveling eastbound on Vaughn Road and the 2017 Ford T250 was traveling northbound on the Eastern Boulevard when they entered the intersection and collided.
