      Hundreds gather to honor firefighter killed in car crash

      Hundreds gathered to honor Dan Beechcraft at the Inland Township Fire Department.

      Hundreds of people gathered at the Inland Township Fire Department on Tuesday night to pay their respects to Dan Beechcraft.

      Beechcraft was killed in a car crash on U.S. 31 last week.

      Beechcraft's brother, Paul, is also a firefighter. He spoke about the memories they shared.

      There were so many people at the funeral, people parked several blocks away and were shuttled to the fire department.

      Family and friends also lined U.S. 31 in Inland Township, in his memory.

      Beechcraft was 41 years old. He leaves behind a wife and a son.
