We regret to pass on that a Memphis Firefighter has died in the Line of Duty and 3 other Firefighters are in the hospital following that crash in South Memphis last night around 2000 hours. It happened at E.H. Crump and Danny Thomas Boulevard. The civilian driving the other vehicle was also transported.
Witnesses say that the pickup truck driver ran a red light, causing the crash. The fire apparatus, responding on a fire call, tried to avoid hitting the pickup but was unable to, then rolled on its side.
More to follow. Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
Take Care. Be careful. Pass It On.
