A memorial sign honoring two medics killed in a car crash while they were on duty now stands at a downtown intersection.

Tuesday, a marker was placed at the corner of Saint Clair Street and Senate Avenue.

It honors the lives of Timothy McCormick and Cody Medley. The two were killed on Feb. 16 when a car collided with the ambulance they were driving.

Their colleagues said they wanted to make sure Tim and Cody’s sacrifice would never be forgotten.

“We were told when Tim died, you don’t know what a family you just stepped into. Well, look around and you can see the family we stepped into. And they’re just wonderful,” said Rosemary McCormick.

Public donations raised through the Indy Fire House rescue paid for the sign.

Mayor Greg Ballard said it will serve as a reminder the dangers public safety works face on a daily basis.
