Firefighter Killed in Crash
An 18-year-old Henderson County volunteer firefighter was killed in a car wreck in Transylvania County this morning.
The Highway Patrol says Gregory Gilbert was heading east on US 64 near Vineyard Loop Road, when he ran off the road and hit a tree.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers say he was wearing his seat belt and that speed may have been a factor in the crash.
Gilbert worked with the Etowah Horseshoe Volunteer Fire Department.
