Mourning The Loss Of Two Dalhart Heroes

The Dalhart Community is mourning the death of two firefighters.

The Dalhart Volunteer Fire Department says that Firefighter Brendan Torres and Fire Chief Curtis Brown were involved in a crash with a semi late last night while returning from a call earlier that night.

At 8:40 p.m., Department of Public Safety Troopers responded to a call about a head-on collision involving a Dalhart Volunteer Fire Department vehicle and a truck tractor towing a semi-trailer on US 54.

Troopers believe that the truck tractor towing the semi-trailer was traveling northeast when the driver of the truck tractor attempted to pass an unknown vehicle and struck the Chevrolet that was traveling southwest head-on.

Brown and Torres were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the truck tractor was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.
