The community is mourning the loss of a firefighter who died in a motorcycle accident Wednesday morning.
Twenty-three-year-old Tyler Warfield died at the scene. According to Highway Patrol, Warfield was travelling north on Silver Lake Road when a pickup travelling south turned onto Dillard Road and collided with the motorcycle.
He was on his way to the Reidville Fire station, after just clocking out from his shift at Clear Springs Fire Rescue.
When the Reidville Fire Department rushed to the scene of the accident, they didn’t expect to find one of their own.
“You know, it’s hard on us all. It’s hard when it’s somebody else, but it’s even harder when it’s one of your own,” said Reidville Fire Department Chief Patrick Evatt.
Warfield had worked at the Clear Springs and Reidville fire departments for nearly three years.
