Tulsa firefighters are remembering one of their own. They're mourning the death of a fire captain killed in a weekend traffic accident.

44 year-old Captain Shawn Randall was killed when his motorcycle
slammed into the back of a truck on the Broken Arrow Expressway. It happened Sunday evening.

Randall was a 22 year veteran of the Tulsa Fire Department. Tulsa Fire Captain Jerry Eckhart: "It's like losing a member of the family when you lose a firefighter." Tulsa Fire Captain Michael Ward: "Hopefully, the way he touched all of our lives, we'll carry on a little part of him."

Funeral services for Randall will be held Wednesday at 2 PM in Broken Arrow.
