FIRE APPARATUS BACKING UP, KILLS 2 PEDESTRIANS IN OHIO

Tragic news from Ohio where a fire department tanker was apparently backing up at a fire scene, killing two pedestrians.
Last night (Thursday April 29) around 2000 hours, the Williamstown VFD was operating at a mutual aid structure fire. William Reed and Karolyn Reed, both age 72, were both run over by “Tanker 8” as it was backing up, resulting in their deaths.
This area is in SW Ohio near Parkersburg, West Virginia along the Ohio River.
