Authorities tell US News one firefighter is dead and another is injured following a crash in rural western Missouri Monday night.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol tells US News a motorist collided with a stopped vehicle — knocking a second stopped vehicle down an embankment where two Mayview firefighters were caught underneath.
The patrol says the crash killed 55-year-old Jeffery Sanders. A second firefighter, 33-year-old Jacob Hayward, was flown to a Kansas City hospital with serious injuries.
According to US News, the driver who caused the crash wasn’t hurt.
Patrol Cpl. Kim Davis tells US News the firefighters had been outside their vehicles working a fire call when the crash happened. The Mayview Fire Protection District didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press.
