Local Firefighter Killed

A Boca Raton firefighter was killed Monday morning.

John Wilson was out for his regular bike ride in his hometown of Jupiter.

He was only a few miles from his home and was coming through the interection at Maplewood and Indiantown, and was hit by a car.

Wilson's locker at Boca's station number five will remain empty for the time-being.

Firefighters say their day felt like it stopped when they got the news.

The fifty year old husband and father of three is a fifteen year veteran of the department.

Jupiter Police say they have not issued any tickets to the driver of the vehicle, but that could change once they finish their investigation.
