A 17-year-old junior member of the Elmer Fire Department died in an accident involving his pickup truck.

Fellow firefighters are mourning the loss of Timothy Crim. The Upper Pittsgrove teen, a student at Woodstown High School, reportedly lost control of his vehicle and crashed Sunday along Jill Road in Pilesgrove, according to NJ.com. No one else was injured.

The Elmer Fire Dept. posted an emotional statement to their Facebook page in honor of Crim:

Crim came from a long line of firefighters, including his late father, late grandfather, and his brother, reports The Press of Atlantic City.
