A veteran Fairfax County firefighter was killed Tuesday morning in a motorcycle crash on Route 3 in Spotsylvania County.

Mica Bland, 42, was on his motorcycle and stopped at a light when a pickup struck him from behind.

Bland, who lived in Lousia County, was on his way to work at the time, Fairfax County Fire Chief John Butler said in an announcement to the department.

“He proudly served our community for over 14 years,” Butler wrote. “Please keep his family, friends, and shift members at FS20 C-Shift in your thoughts and prayers.”
