On Oct. 3, Firefighter Russell Hayes, while driving a department truck, was on his way to have a pump inspected for annual certification. Hayes lost control of the vehicle, veered to the right side of the road, then overcorrected as he tried to get back, causing it to travel off the left side of the road and overturn. Hayes was air lifted to the Mercy Hospital in Springfield, MO, where he later died from injuries sustained in the accident.
