    Default Hotshot killed

    A few days ago I heard that a Hotshot from one of the southern states was killed crossing the interstate at night. I think they were in Florida, and had just come off a fire when they went to look for another crew and several shots got hit on the interstate, and one was killed. Anyone know anything about this?
