LODD Chicago, IL - William Grant Memorial
My condolences to the Grant family and the Chicago Fire Department of Illinois. FireFighter William Grant, 44, a 20 year veteran of the Chicago Fire Department, died Friday March 23, 2007. William was riding in the rear cab of Ladder 51, responding with lights and siren to a fire call in the south side neighborhood of Englewood, when the apparatus was struck on the right rear side by a school bus while negotiating an intersection. The ladder truck swerved to avoid the bus, but was spun by the impact and overturned onto the drivers side. There were no children on the bus at the time of the accident. William did not survive his injuries. The bus driver and three other firefighters were injured in the crash. I have created a permanent memorial for William on my website.
