Paramedic bride rushes to help family in car crash on wedding day

A good paramedic is always willing to help — even on her wedding day.

That's exactly what newlywed Sarah Ray, from Clarksville, Tennessee, did earlier this month, when she stopped at the scene of a crash on the way to her reception, still wearing her wedding dress. Of course, Ray and her new husband, also a paramedic, had a good reason to pull over: Her father, grandmother and another family member were involved in the accident.

Everyone in the crash is expected to be OK, and now Ray has become something of an Internet star. A photo taken by her mother, of her standing in her white gown in front of the ambulance, has gone viral.

The Montgomery County, Tennessee, Facebook page shared the image, which has gotten more than 13,000 "likes" on the social media site.

"How dedicated are you to your job?" the post read. "Sarah Ray, Paramedic with Montgomery County Emergency Medical Services, was photographed on her wedding night working the wreck of one of her wedding guests. Now that's dedication...she stopped to assist on the way from the wedding to the reception! Thank you, Sarah, for loving what you do!"
