Louisville EMT has car stolen while recovering in hospital

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville EMT, injured in a fatal crash last week, has now fallen victim to a crime while in the hospital.

"I'm still in shock about it. It's like I'm walking in a bad dream," said Tammy Hall, the fiance of Jon J. Johnson.

For the past week, Tammy Hall has been by her fiance's side as he continues recovering at University Hospital.

Jon J. Johnson was one of two EMTs, with Louisville Metro EMS, injured in a fatal crash on June 23.

The ambulance was responding to a call on June 23 when it collided with a car on River Road. The driver of that car, 48-year-old Christopher D. O'Bryan, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Johnson and fellow EMT John Morgan have been in the hospital ever since.

Johnson's fiance sat down with us on Wednesday and spoke about his injuries.

"He had the tibia plateau fracture, and the sternum fracture, just some cuts and bruises and stuff like that," said Hall.

Hall says Johnson is making progress, and was able to get into a wheelchair Wednesday. However, on the same day, there was another setback for the family.

Hall noticed Johnson's car missing Wednesday morning when her kids went out to play on Nancy Drive in Shepherdsville.

It's the same car they use to drive to the hospital every day.

"It's a black 2009 Ford Focus, 4-door. There's a UK sticker on the back and also a Supporting Heroes sticker in the back windshield," said Hall.

It has a KY license plate number of 810-MAE.

Also inside the glove compartment was a gun belonging to Johnson.

Hall says, after everything their family has been through, it's tough to take in.

She's simply hoping someone will help police solve this case.

"I think we're all still kinda in shock about everything. Trying to keep our kids minds on other things," said Hall.

If you have any information about the theft, call Shepherdsville Police.

Meanwhile, Jon J. Johnson is listed in fair condition at the hospital.

Police are still investigating the deadly crash.
