Chicago Fire Department Lt. Danny Carbol Dies As A Result of Injuries From Bicycle Crash

Chicago Fire Department Lieutenant Danny Carbol of Chicago's Mount Greenwood neighborhood on the southwest side has died as a result of injuries he sustained in a bicycle crash on September 20th. Lt. Carbol was riding his bicycle home from work when he was involved in a collision with a motor vehicle in an intersection in Evergreen Park. 

According to reports, Ltd. Carbol was riding home through Evergreen Park and had to brake hard and suddenly. This caused him to eject from the bicycle and collide with the motor vehicle. He sustained severe injuries from the collision. After weeks of treatment, Lt. Carbol succumbed to his injuries

Lt. Carbol is remembered for being a regular bicycle commuter and a genuinely kind man. He was the father to four children and the husband to a school teacher at Brother Rice High School. To those in the Chicago Fire Department he was known as an excellent fireman.

Our most sincere thoughts and prayers are with the Carbol family, his family within the Chicago Fire Department, and all those affected by this tragedy. Rest In Peace.
