LEWISBURG - The family of a Rainelle man who died in a car accident is suing an ambulance company and an emergency medical technician for showing a photo of the victim's body.

Johnathan Thomas, 30, died last year when the UPS truck he was driving swerved off the road and into a home in Crawley. His family claims in the lawsuit that EMT Angel Willis of Alderson took photos that were circulated through the community. The complaint describes the images as "unsightly, intrusive and outside the bounds of decency."
