In October, Lt. Bradford Clark, a Hanover County firefighter, was killed when a tractor-trailer failed to “move over” as mandated by Virginia law. Now, the General Assembly plans to memorialize Clark through a specialty license plate and strengthen the state’s “move over” law.
from the initial report:
Two firefighters, Carter Lewis and David Johnson, suffered serious injuries and were eventually released after being hospitalized. The day of the crash was the first day on the job for Lewis, who lost part of his leg as a result of injuries. A third firefighter, Chris Elish, suffered minor injuries.
Carter Lewis is the son of a guy I went to basic training with, we rode the train together from Richmond, Virginia to Fort McClellan, Alabama. He is a highly respected state trooper now.
