CHESTERFIELD, S.C. -- Fire trucks and ambulances are expected to line a route across Chesterfield County on Thursday afternoon, in tribute to an EMT who was killed in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday in Monroe.
Belinda Gale Rivers, 43, of Ruby, S.C., died when the ambulance in which she was riding was struck by a tractor-trailer on Roosevelt Boulevard (U.S. 74) in Monroe. Rivers and the driver of the Sandhills Ambulance vehicle, Jonathan Corey Brown, had just dropped off a patient at CMC Union Hospital.
Funeral services are scheduled for 3 p.m. Thursday at Cross Roads Baptist Church, on Cross Roads Church Road in Ruby -- about halfway between Chesterfield and Pageland.
Officials in Chesterfield County say vehicles from a number of fire departments and rescue services will line the route from Caulder Funeral Home in Chesterfield to the church. That route is along S.C. 9 and S.C. 265.
Motorists in Chesterfield County can expect some delays on those routes Thursday afternoon.
The N.C. Highway Patrol is continuing to investigate the collision.
