State Police in Huntingdon County say a 66-year-old man was killed Tuesday morning after being hit by a vehicle. He was a first responder on scene of a previous crash. Troopers say Kurt Keilhofer responded to a crash in the area of Hares Valley Road in Union Township Tuesday morning. It was around 7:30 when PSP says a second vehicle approaching the scene lost control and hit Keilhofer. He was taken to Penn Highlands Huntingdon where he was later pronounced dead.
Keilhofer was a member of the Mapleton Fire Department which posted a message on its Facebook page saying in part: “Thank you Kurt for your service, in the period of time you were in the department you made a big enough impact on all of our lives, and we can’t begin to thank you Enough. Please keep everyone in your prayers during this hard time, thank you. Rest in peace Kurt, we’ll take it from here.”
