Jessamine County, Kentucky Paramedic Hit by Car Not Expected To Survive


JESSAMINE COUNTY, Ky. Officials in Jessamine County say a paramedic, who was hit by a car early this week, will be taken off life support.

Nicholasville Police say that on Thursday night, an ambulance clipped a car on East Maple Street. They say paramedic John Mackey got out of the ambulance and was hit by another car.

At a prayer vigil on Sunday in Jessamine County, the Jessamine County judge-executive passed along a message from Mackey’s family saying the longtime paramedic was not expected to survive.

Jessamine County leaders say the outpouring of support has been incredible and the family is very appreciative.

Jessamine County EMS crews say they are also very thankful for the support shown by surrounding crews, who have come in to cover shifts so they can be at the hospital with Mackey and his family.

“It’s been very traumatic. Several things happening emotionally for the crews and family and it has affected everyone, down from our judge executive to families of the crews,” Kevin Davidson said.

According to a GoFundMe page set up for Mackey’s family, he will be taken off life support and his organs will be donated.
