    A firefighter was crushed to death Sunday between his firehouse and a rescue truck being driven by another firefighter, authorities said.

    Paul Brady, 42, was doing routine maintenance on top of a Malverne Fire Department heavy-duty truck about 10 a.m. Sunday, Nassau County police said. He fell off the truck when another firefighter, not realizing he was on it, drove off, department spokesman David Gildea said.

    Brady, who was wedged between the truck and the building, suffered massive trauma.

    "He was a great fireman and a great friend to the entire department," Gildea said. "Today's loss was a tragedy."

    The driver of the truck was not charged or cited. Investigators believe Brady's death was an accident.

    Funeral Information

    A funeral for Brady will be held at 10 a.m., Friday, Aug. 4 at Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church in Malverne, N.Y.

    Burial will be at Locust Valley Cemetery. Donations can be made to the Norwood Hook, Ladder & Hose Company No. 1, 30 Broadway, Malverne, N.Y. 11565.
