MIT’s ambulance service is awarded first Collier Medal

MIT’s student-run ambulance service has won the first Collier Medal, given in memory of the campus police officer slain allegedly by the two accused Boston Marathon bombers.

Many members of the volunteer service were close friends of Sean A. Collier, MIT officials said. Some transported him to Massachusetts General Hospital after he was shot as he sat in his cruiser April 18.
