A Farmland volunteer firefighter died and another was critically injured Thursday morning after a crash while responding to a fire.
According to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, a tanker truck with the Farmland Volunteer Fire Department crashed May 25 around 6:30 a.m. near County Roads 1000 West and 400 North in Randolph County. DHS said the tanker truck, which was on its way to a report of a barn fire, was going northbound on 1000 West when the vehicle approached an S-curve and rolled over.
According to DHS, the truck landed on top of 31-year-old Kyle T. Osgood, who was pronounced dead at the scene, and 19-year-old Zachary Lee, who was seriously injured and flown to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne.
DHS said Lee is in critical condition and underwent surgery midday Thursday.
