KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A volunteer firefighter for the Johnson County, Missouri, Fire Protection District was killed in a crash Monday afternoon, the department said.

Carl Monteer died in a rollover wreck on Southwest F Highway in rural Johnson County just before 2:45 p.m.

JCFPD said his was the only vehicle involved in the crash, and Monteer was pronounced dead at the scene.

Monteer had been a volunteer firefighter with JCFPD since March 2018 and worked out of Station 3 in Chilhowee, Missouri, the department said in a Facebook post.

"Response to any fatality accident is hard. Response to one of our own is even harder," JCFPD wrote.
