Fire Truck Wreck

Fire Truck was stored inside the Seaplane Hangar, after it was demolished

Fire Truck being transported to a Scrapyard on Oahu

A US Fish and Wildlife Service employee took a government owned Fire Truck for a joy ride, after consumption of alcohol.  This person also invited other USFWS Volunteers to ride along.  The USFWS driver lost control of the truck and ran it into a vertical supporting steel beam of the NAF Hangar.  This incident completely demolished the Fire Truck. A new/replacement Fire Truck was purchased by the USFWS, at a huge cost. Were there any ramifications for the USFWS employee?  This incident remains one of the most closely guarded FWS secrets on Midway.  A 2015 GAO Audit/Report found no documents relating to this incident.
