GLENCOE, Ky. -- A 23-year-old man who caused a deadly accident in 2012 involving an ambulance is scheduled for sentencing Monday.

Two members of the Gallatin County Fire Department were transporting John Little, 59, of Dry Ridge, when an SUV driven by Hunter LeGrand, of Warsaw, struck the ambulance on U.S. 127 near Tapering Pointe Road in Glencoe in July 2012.

The SUV  struck a pole and a mailbox before crossing the center line and colliding with the ambulance head-on.

The ambulance overturned and landed on its roof.

Little was flown to University Hospital by a medical helicopter where he died from his injuries. An EMT who was in the back of the ambulance with Little, David Waltz, 25, of Carrollton, was also flown to University Hospital by a medical helicopter.

The driver of the ambulance, Justin Shields, 21, of Ghent, was transported by another ambulance to University Hospital.

LeGrand had to be extricated from his vehicle before he was flown to University Hospital by a medical helicopter.

LeGrand is scheduled to be sentenced on multiple charges, including murder, assault, criminal mischief, operating a vehicle under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident.

He is due in court at 9:30 a.m.
