    Rest in peace Jared. May God bless the family and friends of our departed brother.

    BASEHOR, Kan. (AP) - A volunteer firefighter responding to a
    traffic accident died Wednesday when his car was hit by a deputy's
    cruiser that was also headed to the first wreck.
    The early morning crash near here killed Jared M. Moore, 19, of
    The Kansas Highway Patrol said Moore, a volunteer with the
    Fairmount Township Fire Department in Leavenworth County, was
    headed to the rollover accident in his own car. A Leavenworth
    County sheriff's deputy was behind him.
    As Moore slowed to make a left turn, the cruiser hit his car
    from behind.
    Moore was not wearing a seat belt, the patrol said. The deputy
    was treated at a hospital and released.
    The accident was under investigation late Wednesday, as
    authorities tried to determine whether low-lying fog in the area
    was a factor.
    Capt. Mark Linville, a spokesman for the Fairmount Township Fire
    Department, said Moore was driving his own car because the first
    truck had already left the fire station. Moore did not have
    emergency lights on his car, Linville said, because he had only
    been training since August.
    "There was no doubt that he would become a good firefighter,"
    Fire Chief Jeff Theno said. "There are a lot of 19-year-olds out
    there, but this one was dedicated to the field and the community
    that we serve."

    How recent is this? I'm wondering if this isn't one of the guys that is in fire school with me right now. We had someone get killed over winter break just a few weeks ago, but I don't recall the circumstances or even who it was.
