A Good Samaritan nurse who stopped by a road accident to help out a victim ended up losing her life too after another car crashed into hers.

Ana Kincart, 36, was declared deceased on scene by the Boone County Sheriff’s Department on the morning of July 6 in Kentucky, USA. She was one of the two casualties from the accident that occurred on Interstate 275.

Andy Cline, Kincart’s stepfather, remembered the selfless nurse through his Facebook account on July 7, recalling how Kincart met her untimely end.

“Our hearts are ripped out. Our beautiful Daughter Ana was killed yesterday in a car crash on the Carroll Cropper Bridge. While on her way to work she witnessed a car crash in front of her. Being a nurse she exited her car to check on the young man in the accident,” Cline said.

“He was OK but she [stayed] to give a statement to the police. While waiting she was [rear-ended] by two different vehicles killing both she [and] one person who was in the other accident. Please pray for my family,” the stepfather added.

Brandon Hicks, the 24-year-old man that Kincart tried to help, had gotten into the situation after losing control of his car, which spun out, as per ABC-affiliate WCPO-TV yesterday, July 8.

Kincart, a nurse of 12 years, immediately decided to help out Hicks after spotting him. She also sent a picture of the crash to her employer, with the message, “Going to stay here to help comfort the individual in the car crash. To give a statement to police.”

Both Kincart and Hicks died after another car crashed into the nurse’s vehicle.

Kincart is survived by her husband of 15 years, Donnie Kincart, and their four children, Abby, Clhoe, Layla and Tristan, as per her online obituary on the Fitch-Denny Funeral Home website.

‘Not the first time’

Despite passing away too soon, Kincart’s final moments somehow encapsulates how she lived her life: selfless and trying to help someone else.

“That’s not the first time she’s ever done that,” an emotional Cline said in an interview with the television station.

“She was an angel on earth to everybody,” Donnie, meanwhile, lamented, saying that his wife was able to save many other lives including his. “She did everything. She took care of all of us.”

In lieu of flowers, the family has since set up a GoFundMe page and is asking for donations to help the family, especially the four young children Kincart left behind. Ian Biong /ra
