YONKERS, N.Y. -- Funeral services will be held for the Yonkers police detective who was killed when his SUV collided Sunday, Feb. 14, with a firetruck.

Fernandez, who was married with two children, had been with the Police Department for 15 years. He was a “well-respected member” whose “passing is a major loss to the YPD family,” Police Commissioner Charles Gardner said in a previous report in the Daily Voice.

Four firefighters who were on the truck were slightly injured in the crash, which is still under investigation.
