Allegedly intoxicated paramedic kills patient after crashing ambulance

A Georgia paramedic who allegedly admitted to being high on drugs has been arrested after crashing his ambulance and killing the patient he was transporting — before trying to flee the scene in an Uber.

Kevin McCorvey, 34, is accused of flipping the non-emergency ambulance he was driving when he crashed into a ditch in Fairburn, just outside Atlanta, last Friday night.

The crash killed Wilton Thomason, a 66-year-old dialysis patient who was unrestrained in the back, according to a police report obtained by The Post.

Cops who responded to the wreck said McCorvey and other first responders tried to revive the patient while they were still in the overturned ambulance.

After the patient was pronounced dead, police said they had to stop McCorvey and another paramedic who was in the ambulance when it crashed from getting an Uber from the scene.
