 The driver of a semitrailer truck that struck and killed one firefighter and injured five others at an Interstate 39 accident scene has been charged with violating Scott’s Law, which calls on drivers to show what one police officer said is “common sense” at roadside emergency scenes.

Mansur Shakirov, 28, of Spokane, Wash., has been issued citations accusing him of driving too fast for conditions and violating the Move Over Law, also known as Scott’s Law. State police are continuing to investigate the crash that killed veteran firefighter Chris Brown, 39, of Hudson.

The Move Over Law mandates that upon approaching a stopped, authorized emergency vehicle, a motorist should yield the right of way by making a lane change when it is safe to do so. A driver also must reduce speed and proceed with caution if changing lanes would be impossible or unsafe.

The funeral for Brown, a Bloomington firefighter who also volunteered for the Hudson department, will be at 10 a.m. Monday at Eastview Christian Church in Bloomington.

Scott’s Law was named after Lt. Scott Gillen of the Chicago Fire Department, who was struck and killed by an intoxicated driver while assisting at a crash on the Dan Ryan Expressway.
