  • Louisiana firefighter involved in fatal accident resigns

    jbknoe
    BASTROP, La. (AP) - The driver of the Bastrop firetruck that
    crashed into a car, killing a four-year-old child, resigned
    Thursday.
    The accident also critically injured another toddler.
    Lt. Dawson Blackard was ticketed for running a red light and
    placed on paid administrative leave after the April accident.
    Bastrop Fire Chief Willie Mckee described Blackard as a
    dedicated public servant. McKee said he believes that Blackard was
    tormented by the accident, which prompted him to hand in his
    resignation.
    A State Police report states the driver of the car carrying the
    children is also responsible because the children were not properly
    restrained in their car seats.

    I hope somebody is helping this guy deal with this. Something about this makes my "Spidey-sense" tingle.

      Steve...you read my mind. I was thinking the same, as I posted that article. This firefighter should be monitored closely....as I fear he is extremely distressed over the incident. I hope the local brothers are aware...and take steps to ensure his well being.
