Touch a Truck event honors 4-year-old killed in crash

A Fayette County Fire Department is keeping the memory of a 4-year-old boy alive three years after he was killed in an accident. Hunter Braddee loved fire trucks. The third annual Touch a Truck event at McClellandtown Volunteer Fire Company is one way to honor him. Children can explore the vehicles, have their faces painted and do family activities. Hunter‘s grandmother says he was a lovely little boy and this is the best way for the family to heal. “It’s a way for us, the family, to come to terms with Hunter’s passing,” Lisa McKahan said. “Remembering him by doing things like this for the community.” A scholarship is also awarded annually in Hunter’s memory for someone to attend the EMT school.
