Funeral services set for fire official killed in accident


COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Funeral services are now set for Bryant Gladney, Boone County Fire Protection District’s assistant chief who was fatally struck while working an accident scene. The district says visitation will be Monday evening, and a funeral will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Hearnes Center on the University of Missouri campus. A procession will then travel to a funeral home for a private family service. Gladney died in an accident early Wednesday on Interstate 70 near Columbia, as he was working at the scene of a previous accident. Authorities say a tractor-trailer traveling at a high rate of speed struck Gladney’s vehicle, then struck an ambulance and the truck involved in the earlier crash.
