It has been discovered that Tammy Brewer, the Louisville EMT had methadone in her system on the night she is accused of causing an accident that killed a patient.
The commonwealth attorney's discovery revealed that a blood test taken the night of the accident confirms that Brewer did have methadone in her system. The Kentucky State Police Lab conducted the test and found that Brewer had a "therapeutic" amount of methadone in her system.
Discovery documents reveal that Brewer was not seeking treatment at the nearest methadone clinic at the time of the crash.
A Kentucky State Police investigation did reveal that in the year prior to the accident, Brewer had 19 new prescriptions that were filled at 11 different pharmacies by different providers for pain killers and muscle relaxers including xanax, vicodin and klonopin.
An internal investigation by EMS revealed that paramedic Greg Gavin, Brewer's partner has sent a text message to another paramedic saying that Brewer was "loopy" and not in a condition to drive.
The family of Tammy Brewer is now suing the ambulance driver and three EMT's.
