The town of Lincoln is mourning a local firefighter killed in a motor vehicle accident in Canterbury.

Captain Steve Bomba died in a crash on Interstate 93 Friday night that left two others injured.

The 25-year-old Bomba also worked as a dispatcher with the Grafton County Sheriff's Department.

According to his obituary, family members say they will remember Bomba as someone with a big heart, always willing to help those in need.

The Union Leader reports state police and a firefighter motorcycle group helped escort Bomba's body yesterday from Concord Hospital to the funeral home. Firefighters along Interstate 93 paid tribute as the escort made its way north.

A wake will be held Tuesday, followed by a funeral on Wednesday.

Officials say it's not clear why the vehicle in which Bomba was a passenger drifted off the highway.

The driver - Lincoln firefighter Michael Weden - and another passenger - former Haverhill police officer Greg Collins - both suffered serious injuries.
