Assistant Chief Burchett was killed after responding to a motor vehicle accident with possible injuries.
The incident happened around 9 a.m. on US 460 in Johnson County near the Magoffin County line where paramedics originally responded to a minor crash involving a pregnant woman.
While on that scene, a coal truck lost control on an incline and hit Assistant Chief Burchett along with the pregnant victim of the original crash.
Burchett was rushed to Paul B. Hall Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 10:04 a.m. The pregnant woman, identified as Erica Brown, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say she had not appeared to have suffered any injures from the first crash.
Another paramedic, Brian Moore, was treated and released from Hall Regional.
