Capt. Theo Adams was injured when the fire truck he was riding in overturned while responding to a call.
The driver of the fire truck was later cited and fined for driving too fast for the circumstances.
Adams was paralyzed from the neck down after the crash. He died on Tuesday night at his home.
Sadly @LasVegasFD has lost one of our own, Capt. Theo Adams passed from injuries he sustained during an accident in 2003. Considered a "Line of Duty Death" flags at all Valley fire stations will be at half-staff. pic.twitter.com/BCIKmiDTRO
At the family's request, a private memorial service will be held Monday of the immediate family & members of the fire service. Please remember Capt. Adams and the sacrifice he made to our community. https://t.co/iE8idv6MZ4
