A drunk firefighter in IN was arrested in connection with the death of another firefighter after he reportedly hit the victim with his auto Friday night.

Cannelburg, In. - A southern In volunteer firefighter was killed while responding to a crash Friday night.

Just before 10 p.m., police were dispatched to the area of Old Highway 50 just west of CR 800 E. on the report of a crash with injury. Each had arrived in their personal vehicles. Three firefighters from Montgomery and Cannelburg Fire Departments along with deputies from the Daviess County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene.

A fourth responder, Colby Blake, 26, of Cannelburg, struck a vehicle of another firefighter. Police say Blake's Dodge continued east, striking a 2013 Ford Fusion parked by 27-year-old Kendall Murphy of Montgomery. Blake's auto then continued on and hit the vehicle of the victim, 27-year-old Kendall Murphy of Montgomery, who was standing outside his pickup and struck. Murphy, also a firefighter, was standing outside of his vehicle and was struck by Blake as he continued east.

Murphy was pronounced dead at the scene by the Daviess County coroner due to multiple injuries.

Blake was not injured in the crash, but police said his blood alcohol content at the time was 0.21 percent, more than twice the legal limit in IN, which is 0.08 percent. They say his blood alcohol level was 0.21%.

Officials say Blake crashed into a 2007 Ford F350, which belonged to another firefighter, before coming to a stop.

Blake is being held in the Daviess County Security Center and formal charges will be filed Monday.

Blake has been preliminarily charged with Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated Causing Death and Reckless Driving.
