OFF-DUTY FF KILLED IN CAR/TRAIN CRASH IN SC

     

Monday, January 7, 2013 While this appears to be off duty, we will confirm and advise as police are investigating after a South Carolina Firefighter was killed when his pickup was struck by a train on Sunday. South Carolina Highway Patrol troopers and St. George Police Department officers were called out to NW Railroad Avenue, near Ann Street, around 5 p.m. There are no lights or mechanical arms at the crossing, but there are several signs. According to Police Chief Anthony Britt, the man driving the truck was a firefighter with the Grover Rural Volunteer Fire Department. Britt said the firefighter was trying to cross the tracks before the train arrived. He also said the truck was dragged about 100 yards. Britt said the train consisted of just a locomotive and a caboose.
