Firefighter injured in wreck has died

James ‘Tickle’ Hawkins, who was severely injured in a horrific traffic accident here last year, has died of his injuries. Hawkins suffered a traumatic brain injury when his Saturn Ion crossed the centerline on Hwy. 41 South near C&B Convenience Store and hit a tractor-trailer nearly head-on just before noon on April 3, 2015. Hawkins, an LCHS graduate and volunteer firefighter in Monroe County, was removed from life support earlier this week. Funeral arrangements are pending but will be announced later by Williams Funeral Home.
