NH volunteer arrives at crash that killed daughter

Firefighter Arrives At Fatal Crash, Finds Daughter Is Victim

BROOKLINE, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire volunteer firefighter arrived at the scene of a deadly car crash only to realize his daughter was the victim.

Thirty-year-old Katie Hamilton of Brookline was killed in the accident around 9 a.m. Christmas Eve at the intersection of Routes 13 and 130. The mother of three young daughters worked as a plumber for her father Steve Whitcomb's business.

Brookline Police Sgt. Douglas Barnett says Hamilton was southbound on Route 13 preparing to turn left when a truck driven by 31-year-old Greg Cullen of Milford hit the rear of her car and sent it into the northbound lane. She was then broadsided by a Ford F-250 pickup truck driven by 37-year-old James Ciprotti of Weare. Neither man was injured.

Tragic for the family , my brother was struck by a drunk, my family was never the same . My father died a few years later from one heart attack after another over grief. My mother was scared all my life I had to call in I was all-right when I worked away from home or I called if I had to work late.
This father will be mourning all his life what a Christmas for the family.

It's never right to lose a child of any age. May god have mercy on their souls.

This is so sad - I wish people would slow down, drive offensively and defensively; you are not the only person on the road and it is not any more important for you to get where you are going than the other drivers - it makes me so mad when I am going the speed limit (and unfortunately over the speed limit at times to keep from being hit) and someone rides my bumper - get up earlier to go to work, start earlier to your destination so you want have to TRY to make up time, The life you save my be your own!
