Off-duty firefighter dies following crash in Raleigh
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - An off-duty firefighter has died due to injuries he sustained when his car overturned during a car crash in North Carolina.
Raleigh Fire Lt. Herman Gregory Ellis was the sole occupant in his car during the multi-vehicle crash on Six Forks Road and I-540 in Raleigh around noon on Sunday. He was then taken to a hospital, where he died.
“Greg was a great union man through and through, an even better ‘old school’ fireman, dedicated father, and a great friend to many,” the Raleigh Fire Fighters Professional Association said Sunday in a Facebook post.
Ellis had been with the city’s fire department for more than a decade.
