Fire-Rescue Captain Spent 16 Days In Hospital
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- A driver accused of hitting a Sunrise fire-rescue paramedic with her car and fleeing the scene last year agreed to a plea deal Tuesday.
In February 2006, Capt. Steve Grimstead was assisting with the ground transport of a victim shot at a gas station located off West Commercial Avenue and Nob Hill Road when he was struck. Firefighters were about to place the shooting victim in an air rescue helicopter.
