A deputy chief from the Maryland Office of the State Fire Marshal and an FBI agent are dead after a driver in a Honda Accord struck and killed them both Friday night.
Deputy Chief Sander Cohen, 33, stopped to assist FBI Supervisory Special Agent Carlos Wolff, 36, who had been in a single-vehicle crash southbound on Interstate Highway 270, Maryland State Police said.
Cohen – who grew up in Rockville and was a graduate of Winston Churchill High School – was also a member of the Rockville Volunteer Fire Department, where he held the rank of Lieutenant and had volunteered for over 14 years, beginning at the age of 19.
“It [the Rockville fire station] was his family,” said Rockville VFD President Eric Bernard. “He wasn’t married, so he would come see people working on the other shifts.”
