A 19-year old Pennsylvania firefighter died in the line of duty while responding to a fire in his POV on Wednesday evening just before 6pm,
Brandon Little of the United Hook and Ladder Fire Company, Company 33, out of New Oxford, Pennsylvania crested a steep hill, apparently lost control of his Jeep Grand Cherokee and crashed through a post and rail fence before slamming into the roof of a house and into a tree. Debris from the crash flew through the front window of the homeowner who called 911.
Speed is believed to have been a factor.
He was ejected from his vehicle, landing in the road. Police do not believe he was wearing his seat belt.
Here is the initial video report from WHPTV.com:
