We regret to pass on that a Blissfield Township (Michigan, NW of Toledo, Ohio) Firefighter was killed in the Line of Duty in a single vehicle crash yesterday while responding to a barn fire. He was not wearing a seatbelt.
34-year-old Joseph Gallo was a Captain with the Blissfield Township Fire Department. Captain Gallo was driving a Chevy Impala with emergency lights on, responding to a barn fire. While driving on a gravel part of the road, he lost control and the vehicle rolled over. He tragically died in the Line of Duty from injuries sustained in that crash.
