We regret to pass on that East Side VFD (Albermarle, Stanly County, NC) Firefighter Dakota Snively was killed in the Line of Duty yesterday evening.
While he was responding to a water rescue at Morrow Mountain State Park with confirmed persons in the water, Firefighter Snavely was involved in a motor vehicle crash with a commercial motor vehicle on Hwy 205. Investigators said that truck was hauling chickens when the truck driver lost control, just outside Oakboro, lost its load and apparently caused the crash.
Firefighter Snavely passed away from traumatic injuries sustained from the crash. More to follow.
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In peace.
