We regret to pass on to you that Dundee/Wayne Township (Tuscarawas County, South of Cleveland) volunteer Firefighter Ruben E. Mast, 43, died in the Line of Duty after a traffic crash while reportedly responding to a call at around 1700 hours this evening, Monday. Firefighter Mast was transported to Union Hospital in Dover, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
FF Mast was driving eastbound in a 2008 Ford F-250 truck when he lost control and went left of center, over-corrected and struck a guardrail before the truck overturned. He was ejected from the truck and preliminary investigation indicates that he wasn’t using his seat belt.
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
