USFA LODD: Missouri Firefighter On-Duty Death Notification 06.19.2017

On  June 19, 2017 Firefighter Jeffery Mason Sanders, 55, was killed and another firefighter was injured when they were struck by a privately owned vehicle while working at the scene of a “wires down” call. The private vehicle crashed into the rear of another private vehicle stopped on a roadway behind a fire department vehicle. The fire department vehicle then struck the two firefighters who were nearby, trapping them underneath as it went down an embankment and stopped. Firefighter Sanders was pronounced deceased at the scene. The second firefighter, 33-year-old Jacob Hayward, was flown to the Research Medical Center in Kansas City with critical injuries.

Our condolences to the Sanders Family & Friends, Mayview Fire Protection District, and to all affected by Firefighter Jeffery Mason Sanders’ passing.
