Fundraiser held to assist injured emergency workers

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A community came together to help two emergency workers who were injured during a fatal crash, by holding a fundraiser Friday night.

Jon Johnson and John Morgan were injured in late June while driving an ambulance to an accident on River Road.

A car hit the ambulance and the driver of the car was killed.

Johnson has undergone several surgeries, including four on his right leg. Johnson's car was also stolen from his driveway while he was in the hospital.
"Their desire to help the public and to help a stranger is so great that they are willing to put their lives on the line. That in itself is a reason for when they do get hurt or they do get injured, for the public to support them help them and to help them out in these times of need," said Jason Herrin, of the Louisville Metro EMS unit.

All of the money collected from the fundraiser will help Johnson and Morgan pay for medical expenses.

Anyone who wants to donate can do so at any Fifth Third Bank.

A benefit fund for Louisville Metro EMS Injured Employees has been established.
