its a shame guy died ....but fireman was on emergency - technically guilty - morally part of his job
A firefighter has been found guilty of careless driving following the death of a man whose car was struck by a fire truck answering a 999 call.
Garry Trotter, 41, from Bo'ness, was convicted at Falkirk Sheriff Court of running a red light at speed and failing to give way.
The fire engine hit a car being driven by John McIntosh in Bo'ness last May.
Trotter, who has been a firefighter for 17 years, was given six penalty points and fined £750.
