Hundreds from across the state gathered Sunday at an Eastern Kentucky middle school to say goodbye to an EMS Official, who died trying to help a pregnant woman involved in an accident.
Johnson County EMS Director Christa Burchett died last Tuesday, after a coal truck slammed into her. She was helping Erica Brown, a pregnant woman injured in another crash. Brown was also killed.
Burchett's funeral was held Sunday in Lawrence County. Immediately following the funeral, family, friends, and colleagues took part in a long procession of cars and emergency vehicles to Burchett's final resting place.
