Services will take place Thursday for the southeastern Indiana firefighter who was killed in an off-duty crash last week.

He also worked as a fork lift driver for Beckman & Culture in Florence. He had a gun collection, enjoyed cars and was the founder and president of the New Age Creations Car Club.

Richardson died Saturday when a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado  struck a 2005 Ford Taurus and then went on to hit his 2007 Ford Crown Victoria on Woodspointe Drive in Florence, police have said.

Richardson was pronounced dead at the scene. His passenger, Marquea Schwing, suffered serious injuries and was taken to a hospital.

The driver of the Chevrolet, William Stanton, 47, was arrested on charges of criminal mischief, assault and operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of a controlled substance.

He will be buried in Napoleon, Indiana.
