Hanover County Fire-EMS Lieutenant Killed in the Line of Duty

Hanover CO, Va – On Thursday, October 11, 2018, at approximately 9:00 p.m., the Virginia State Police responded to a two-vehicle crash involving a fatality at southbound I-295, north of exit 38B.

The trooper’s preliminary investigation reveals that Hanover County Fire-EMS was on scene providing assistance with a two-vehicle crash with all of its emergency equipment activated, when a tractor trailer traveling southbound struck the engine in the rear.

Unfortunately, a total of three Fire-EMS personnel were injured in the crash with one of them succumbing to their injuries at the scene. Two were transported with serious injuries sustained at the scene from the crash. The driver of the tractor had to be extricated from the cab of the truck and was transported for treatment with serious injuries.

The firefighter killed in the line of duty, at the scene of the crash, was Lieutenant Brad Clark from Station 6, Hanover County Fire-EMS.

Please join Hanover County Fire-EMS as we mourn the death of Lieutenant Brad Clark and keep his family and fellow firefighters in your thoughts and prayers.

HOWARD COUNTY, MARYLAND FIREFIGHTER KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY-LARGE DWELLING FIRE
The Secret List www.FireFighterCloseCalls.com
It’s with deep regret that we pass on that a Howard County (Maryland, DC area) Firefighter was Killed in the Line of Duty early this morning. The “McMansion” style dwelling in the Clarksville area was responded to just before 0200 hours. While operating, a MAYDAY was transmitted and initial reports indicate a Firefighter has fallen through a section of the home and had become trapped. The fire exceeded 7 alarms.
Much more to follow. Photo (not ours) below.
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
