FAIRFIELD, Ill. (WFIE) - The community of Fairfield is mourning after the life of a young firefighter was claimed during a tragic crash Saturday morning.

Illinois State Police announced this weekend the passing of Logan M. Kreiter, a 19-year-old man from Fairfield.

Investigators determined Kreiter was killed after his Jeep went off the road on 925 N and rolled several times into a field.

Saturday evening, the Fairfield Rural Fire Department shared a statement expressing their heartache after losing one of their own.

“Logan was always a joy to be around and had a smile that we will always remembered,” part of the statement said. “Logan will be missed by everyone but his sprit will always be with us.”

Fairfield FFA advisor and assistant football coach, Curt Robbins released a statement saying:

Logan was a kid you never had to ask for anything, and someone you could always rely on. We saw evidence of this first hand through his close friendship with our son Camden and our entire family. Logan was a kind and wonderful young man with a very bright future who was taken way too soon.

The fire department says Kreiter joined as a Junior Firefighter while in high school and was continuing to serve while attending college.

The agency asks everyone to remember his fellow firefighters as they mourn the loss of a brother.
