Firefighter Bruer, a pipeman on Company 52, was riding on the right side running board while responding to an alarm. As the truck turned onto unfinished pavement, the truck began to skid. Fearing the truck was going to collide with a clay bank, he leaped from the truck but fell under the trucks wheels. He died a short time later of severe head trauma.
