Two Paramedics from American Ambulance Service in Cullman were killed en route to a call Thursday when their ambulance collided with a southbound train just south of Falkville.

Tommy Allen Allred, 26, and Chastity Miller, 29, died within minutes of each other, following the 10:30 a.m. crash at a railroad crossing on Piney Grove Road.

According to reports, Allred and Miller were the only occupants of the ambulance.

Both Allred and Miller leave behind children.

New Hope Funeral Home and Moss Funeral Service will announce the arrangements for Miller and Allred, respectively. I'll try to find out and post them.

God bless their souls and comfort their families.

I met Tommy in boot camp at Great Lakes Naval Base in Chicago on April 2003. As we glanced at each other, I smiled at him and he smiled back. We didn't really talk to each other but ever since then, we kept in touch through emails and telephone calls. We never personally met again, but we never lost touch with each other, which demonstrates him to be a true friend. I am so saddened by his loss. My condolences and prayers are with him and his family. May he rest in peace. Tommy, good bye my friend!

Tommy and my husband were in the Navy together. He was one of the greatest guys you could ever meet. Anytime you talked to Tommy first and foremost were his daughter and his job. One of the papers said if you wanted to get Tommy talking ask about his daughter or his job and that was the truth. Tommy died doing the one thing he loved. He will be missed but for me never forgotten

I spent yesterday taking Christmas presents to Tommy's daughter (kimberly) from the MCAVFD. Tommy was one of our firefighter for 5 years (Falkville). Kimberly is dong well and growing like crazy! Tommy would be so proud of her riding her new bike! I will never forget the day that they were taken from us...having to drive by there everyday is really tough! We will make it and I know they are both with me and Terry everday that we run a 911 call. Someone said at least they died doing what they loved!
Everyone please just continue to pray for Kimberly and Tommy Jr. (which will be here any day!)

This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to deal with. When you get involved in the world of fire fighting you never imagen having to deal with the death of one of your on. I have so many memories of Tommy, mostly his heart. He cared for everyone, even when they didn't care about him. He always was involved in whatever was going on. From late night card games, being inducted into the fire dept to swimming at fire college. Tommy, you will always be our great escape artist! We will never forget you!

Not a day goes by that I do not notice something that reminds me of Chastity. A song, a car, a movie, a picture.... Chastity will always be my hero, not just as a paramedic but also as my baby sister. When she left this world, a part of my soul left with her. For those that knew Chastity, knew the joy of hearing her laughter, felt the warmth of her smiles and the value of her friendship.
For Evelyn and Kimberly and Thomas, while the reality of their deaths are still hard to accept, I know that they are both up in heaven watching over all of those they loved. And even though Tommy and Chas are no longer with us in body they are with us in our hearts....May the Lord comfort you
