Troopers said Shelby N. Brandt, of Nevada, MO, died Wednesday night on Interstate 49 just north of Harrisonville.

"I guess what I thought was, we lost a wonderful man," Tricia Brandt, Shelby's wife, said.

The Vietnam veteran and pastor was being taken to the Kansas City VA Medical Center to get some tests run after feeling out of sorts.

Patrol spokesman Sgt. Bill Lowe said the driver of the ambulance from the Vernon County Ambulance District lost control about 11:30 p.m. when the back end started sliding on wet pavement. The ambulance went off the road and overturned.

"He had a servant's heart. He loved the jail ministry, he loved to minister people about the Lord and he always put everyone before himself," Tricia Brandt said.

Shelby Brandt's son, Stoney, had just returned from a motorcycle ride to the nation's capital with his dad.

"He was just an awesome man. He always made you laugh and he could eat more hot dogs and popcorn than any man I know and I miss him," Stoney Brandt said.

The entire close-knit family will miss him and now Tricia Brandt said it's time to lean on each other.

"We need each other to remind each other to remember him, to get us through," she said.

A 23-year-old paramedic sitting with the patient, Joshua Jeffries, of Nevada, suffered serious injuries and the 25-year-old driver, Gavin Crocker, of Schell City, MO, suffered minor injuries.

Troopers are still investigating the cause of the crash.
