Volunteer firefighter Stephen Whitcomb rushed to the scene of a car crash in Brookline, New Hampshire on Christmas Eve. As he worried whether the female victim would survive, he sadly recognized her as his 30-year-old daughter.
Katie Hamilton, the firefighter’s daughter, was driving to work Christmas Eve morning after dropping her three children off at their grandmother’s house. It was around 9:00 AM when the deadly crash occurred. Hamilton was preparing to take a left turn when a Toyota Tundra pickup truck struck the side of her vehicle, causing her to veer into oncoming traffic where a second pickup truck collided with her vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene, just moments before her first-responder father arrived.
According to police, speed nor alcohol seem to be factors in the fatal crash. However, police are investigating whether driver inattentiveness could have caused the wreck.
