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.
