An EMT with the FDNY is facing some serious charges after she reportedly ran through a stop sign while driving a city ambulance- and ran over a man in the process.

Iyana Curtis, a 23-year-old EMT with the FDNY, fatally struck 63-year-old Dane Striani while on duty last month.

Curtis attempted to slow-crawl through a crosswalk-lined intersection but made no effort to stop.

Hearing a loud noise, Curtis stopped and dismounted from the Ford F-450 ambulance, eventually finding Striani on the side of the road.

According to the New York Post, the EMT attempted to save Striani, but he later died of his injuries.

Since then, Curtis has been arrested and charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian, failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to exercise due care.

Curtis, who joined the FDNY in 2017, has since been restricted from patient care and is barred from driving agency vehicles.
