Nearly ten years ago, on the snowy, icy morning of January 23rd, 2003 while working as a Medic Paramedic on the scene of a traffic accident, Tim Hayes was struck by a fully loaded tractor trailor, two SUV's and his Medic ambulance on Interstate 77 in northern Mecklenburg County. He was dragged 64 feet down a guardrail and another 25 feet over the guardrail. Miraculously, Tim survived the horrific accident.
On January 23rd, 2013 Medic will reunite Tim with the individuals that were involved in his incident and those who helped in his recovery. In addition, through this reunion, Medic will raise awareness for the North Carolina Move Over Law which protects public safety and line workers when performing their jobs alongside our roads and highways.
