We have been advised by authorities that Fire Chief Wes Adams has passed away after being struck by a vehicle while working an accident on Hwy 63 Monday evening.

The incident occurred after the Sedgwick Fire Department was on scene of a multiple vehicle accident when Chief Adams was struck by a vehicle.

Adams was rushed by ambulance to a Jonesboro hospital for treatment of injuries.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Chief Adams and the Sedgwick Fire Department.
