The parents of a 14-year-old Knox County boy who was struck and killed by a Knox County EMS ambulance in August have filed a lawsuit claiming negligence on the part of the ambulance service and the driver, Kevin French, led to their son’s death.

According to the lawsuit filed Monday in Knox Circuit Court, Rodney Callender and Holly Dale Johnson are seeking to recoup the medical and funeral expenses totaling $15,603.

In addition, the parents are seeking compensation for the loss of affection and companionship from their son, the loss of the 14-year-old’s future ability to earn money and punitive damages.
