Allen Frye, Captain
Age 31, Volunteer Roslyn Rescue Hook and Ladder Company #1, New York
Captain Frye and the members of his department had just completed a rescue drill at an abandoned restaurant. Captain Frye and another firefighter were at the rear of a pumper loading hose.
A car operated by a driver who was impaired by a combination of alcohol and anti-depressant drugs approached the pumper. The driver drove around cones and barrels marking the training site and struck the two firefighters at the rear of the pumper. Captain Frye was killed and the other firefighter was severely injured.
The Roslyn Rescue Hook and Ladder Company #1 lost two members on September 11, 2001, in the attacks on the World Trade Center. Brothers Tom and Peter Langone were killed in the attacks. One brother was a police officer and the other an FDNY firefighter.
The driver of the vehicle was later charged with second-degree vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated.
