Longtime Hamilton EMT killed in motor vehicle accident on 295

A major motor vehicle accident on northbound Interstate 295  claimed a life of longtime volunteer emergency medical technician and Hamilton resident Jeffrey Bergner, 50 years of age.

Bergner was heading to work at Capital Health Systems, where he worked as an emergency room technician, when his Jeep was struck by a car driven by Nathan Keller, 24, who police said lost control of his car, went into a grass median, then veered back onto the interstate and crossed into the middle lane, hitting Bergner and ejecting him.

Bergner was remembered for his volunteer service with two Hamilton rescue squads, Rusling Hose and Nottingham. He’d been an EMT since 1989, his obituary said.
