Marine Killed In Hit And Run Was Acting “Selflessly” Says Commander

Cpl. William Ferrell, 21, was struck and killed in Maryland last month as he was helping a disabled vehicle on the side of U.S. 15 in a rainstorm.

While the search is on for the tractor trailer or heavy duty pickup with a car-hauling trailer, the Commander at Camp David, MD where he served had a lot of praise for the young man.

Col. Benjamin Watson, said in a statement that his unit was heartbroken and that Ferrell was acting in a characteristically selfless manner when he died.

Please send prayers to is family.
