FIREFIGHTER DIES FROM INJURIES SUSTAINED IN 2022 APPARATUS ROLLOVER CRASH – OHIO

A firefighter in Meigs County has died from injuries he sustained in a fire truck rollover crash several months ago.

Kevin Dailey died Tuesday, Middleport Fire Chief Jeff Darst said.

“It is with deep sorrow that that we report the passing of Middleport Fire Department member Kevin Dailey,” the Middleport Fire Department said in a Facebook post. “Kevin was a lifetime member of the fire service in Middleport and also Richland Township near Lancaster.”

Firefighters were returning from a call Sept. 18, 2022, when one of their trucks rolled over in a crash along Storys Run Road in Cheshire Township.

The driver of the vehicle was ejected and pinned under the front of the truck. Other units returning from the same call were on scene immediately and were eventually able to remove the firefighter using air bags.

Darst said Dailey worked at the Middleport Fire Department for 10 years, then worked at the Richland Township Fire Department for about 30 years. He returned to Middleton for another two years.

The chief said Dailey has been in the firefighting business for a total of 50 years.
