Line of Duty Death, Firefighter Tramel

I've decided to start posting LODD's (Line of Duty Deaths) in tribute to those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for the communities in which they served. My heart goes out to the loved ones that are left behind. On average, about 100 firefighters per year die in the line of duty.

Tramel, Matthew Douglas

Age: 18

Cause of Death: Vehicle Collision

Firefighter Tramel was responding to a reported car fire when he lost control of his personal vehicle and struck a tree. The North Carolina Highway Patrol reported that wet road conditions and speed were contributing factors to the accident. Seat Belts: Equipped but not in use. Incident Location: Deep Branch Road and Normal Street (USNG: 17S PU 6410 3822)
