A first responder, originally from the Midstate, was killed in the line of duty Saturday morning in Huntingdon County.
22-year-old Ethan Amsbaugh is from the Newville area and graduated from Boiling Springs High School.
State police said he died when the ambulance he was riding in crossed the center line on Route 22 in Brady Township around 6:30.
It then went off the road, causing the vehicle to flip onto the passenger side.
Troopers said Amsbaugh was partially ejected and was not wearing his seat belt.
He was a member of the Mount Union Fire Department.
Regarding the comments following this article, I don't have the facts of the matter. I admit that I am rarely buckled in when working on a patient in the back during a call. Someone said he was in the front passenger seat but I have no idea whether he has firsthand knowledge or is simply making an assumption. Whatever the case may be my thoughts are with his family and friends now. Rest in peace.
