Ambulance Driver Sentenced in Fatal Boone Co. Crash

An ambulance driver was sentenced Monday for a fatal crash in Beaver last year.

According to Carroll County circuit court documents, a judge handed paramedic Robert Genzen, of Manning, a 10-day jail sentence for an ambulance crash that killed a fellow paramedic and a patient. The accident occurred last May on U.S. Highway 30. Genzen was driving the ambulance at the time and collided with a tractor-trailer. Genzen and another paramedic were injured in the accident.

Prosecutors say Genzen was driving the ambulance at 90 miles per hour before rear-ending the truck. “He should have been slowing down much sooner. There were no visual obstructions or anything like that,” Assistant Boone County Attorney Daniel Gonnerman said. Genzen struck the semi as he attempted to pass the vehicle on the right.

Genzen won’t have to serve any jail time if he successfully completes probation. His lawyer plans to appeal the sentence.
