Bradley County EMS removes employee from scheduling in wake of Wednesday accident

The Bradley County EMS has announced it has removed its part-time employee, Drew Ingram, from its scheduling pending the completion of an investigation into a fatal accident in which he was involved and as he recupterates from injuries.

A Tennessee Highway Patrol report said the accident on Wednesday morning on U.S. Highway 64 left William F. Rogers, 74, of Hiwassee, Ga., and Judith L. Rogers, 73, dead.

The report said Ingram, driving east on the highway, steered his Nissan Titan across the center line and then crashed into a Chevrolet Silverado.

The Rogerses were towing a boat at the time of the accident.

In its news release, the Bradley County EMS said Ingram had been an employee for about eight months on a part-time basis, working about 24 hours each week.

On the morning of the collision, the release said he was traveling to his full-time employment.

“During his tenure here, he has proven to be a dependable and trustworthy employee, never exhibiting any problem behavior,” Bradley County EMS Chief Danny Lawson said in the release.
