Firefighter cited after crash that killed St. Jude employee
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis firefighter has been cited after a crash that killed a St. Jude employee in April.
The crash happened April 5 at the intersection of Walnut Grove and Mendenhall.
Police said 33-year-old Josh Bichelman was driving down Walnut Grove, trying to turn left onto Mendenhall.
That’s when witnesses say Lt. Raymond Glover ran a red light, forcing Bichelman’s car into a utility pole.
Bichelman was pronounced dead on the scene.
Glover was off duty at the time of the crash and was not given a sobriety test.
He has now been cited with failure to yield right of way, resulting in death, and faces a fine and losing his license for a period of time.
Bichelman was the bone marrow transplant coordinator at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a husband, and father to a young son.
