When an ambulance collides with a cement truck, a 21-year-old paramedic is killed.

It was revealed today that a “BEAUTIFUL and kind” paramedic who was killed in a horrific crash involving an ambulance and a cement lorry had only recently graduated.

When the ambulance she was riding in collided with a heavy goods vehicle on the A21 near Tonbridge, Kent, on Wednesday night, Alice Clark died at the scene.

Ms Clark, a 21-year-old employee, was one of three people hurt in the accident.

The ambulance service confirmed that a male colleague was airlifted to the hospital with multiple serious injuries.

Meanwhile, a female paramedic trainee was taken to the hospital with a head injury.

The driver of the lorry was only slightly hurt in the collision, which occurred around 8 p.m.

Ms Clark’s parents said she will be “missed more than words can express” in a statement released today.

“Alice was ecstatic to become a paramedic and looked forward to each shift,” they continued.

“She was a lovely daughter, sister, and granddaughter who was kind and fun-loving.

“She enjoyed traveling and was adored by all who met her.

“Her family and friends will miss her more than words can express.

“At this very sad and tragic time for us, we would appreciate privacy.”

The manager of the Paddock Wood Operating Unit, where she worked, paid tribute to the paramedic, who had only joined the team in November.

“Alice was already very much a part of our ambulance family and will be remembered as a kind and dedicated paramedic,” he said.

“Her colleagues will miss her greatly, and we’re sending our condolences and prayers to her family and friends during this difficult time.”

Several emergency crews, including the air ambulance service, as well as police and fire service personnel, were dispatched to the scene.

Kent Police has launched an investigation and is asking anyone who witnessed the incident or has dashcam footage to contact them.

While investigations were underway, the main road was closed for several hours.

It reopened in the morning of yesterday.

“Dashcam footage and witnesses are being sought following a collision on the coastbound carriageway of the A21 near Sevenoaks,” a Kent Police spokesman said.

“Kent Police were dispatched to the scene at 8.16 p.m. on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, after receiving a report of an ambulance colliding with a cement truck.

“Serious Collision Investigation Unit officers have begun their investigation.”
