The Swoope Volunteer Fire Company Officers and Members would like to send their deepest sympathy and prayers to the Hanover County Fire Department and the Clark Family.
A Hanover County firefighter killed after a tractor-trailer struck a fire truck working an accident along I-295 Thursday night.
Forty-three-year-old Lt. Brad Clark with Hanover County Fire-EMS was killed and three other firefighters were injured after troopers said their firetruck was rear-ended on I-295 near Pole Green Road at 9 p.m.
"The fire engine had its emergency lights activated while stopped in the far left lane and shoulder," Virginia State Police Public Relations Director Corinne Geller said. "A southbound tractor-trailer rear-ended the fire engine and struck four firefighters who were outside the fire engine."
A Maryland man was arrested and charged with several violations. Virginia has a MOVE OVER law, please take a few seconds and give way to all that work on the extremely dangerous highways!
We wish a speedy recovery to those firefighters still recovering from this tragic accident.
