While returning home from the station after working with his fire department on a motor vehicle accident response call, Firefighter Cummins, who had complained at the station of not feeling well, suffered a fatal medical injury, the nature of which is still to be reported, crashing into three parked cars as the privately owned vehicle he operated came to a stop. A passenger in the vehicle, a fellow firefighter, was not reported to have been seriously injured.
