Charge filed in death of a Michigan fire chief along I-94
A 24-year-old man has been charged with reckless driving in the death of a fire chief who was struck and killed in June while responding to a crash in southwestern Michigan. Brandon Clevenger of Springfield was charged Tuesday with reckless driving causing death.
Ed Switalski was hit while on Interstate 94. He served as chief of Comstock Township Fire and Rescue for four years. The 55-year-old Switalski worked at the Kalamazoo-area department after more than three decades at the Pleasantview Fire District in suburban Chicago. Clevenger hasn't appeared in court.
It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney who could be contacted for comment.
