ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - A firefighter who died after being struck while working at a crash scene in South Alabama has been identified.

Lt. Byron Piggott with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency says Dwain Bradshaw, 41, of Florida, was struck and later died while working a fatal crash involving a commercial vehicle and a motorcycle.

An investigation into the crash indicated a 1999 Freightliner loaded with logs was traveling east on Baldwin 112 when it approached the initial crash scene.

Piggott says 57-year-old Keith Owens of Pensacola has been identified as the motorcyclist in the initial crash. An investigation into that crash indicated a 2011 International tractor-trailer was struck by a 2017 Yahama motorcycle, driven by Owens.

No other information related to the crashes has been released as the investigation continues.
