A young Dubois County firefighter sworn in less than a week ago died in an accident Sunday when his truck ran off the road and overturned in a creek.
Officials tell 14 News that 21-year-old Mitchell Haas was a volunteer firefighter with the Ferdinand Fire Department.
The Indiana DNR says Haas left a friend's house Sunday afternoon, and headed west on County Road 175. Soon after, Conservation Officer Mike Kellner says Haas' truck was found lying upside down in the nearby creek.
