The death of a Tennessee fire captain’s 22-year-old son has sparked debate over illegal immigration after he was allegedly killed by an undocumented driver, and the victim’s devastated parents are speaking out.

Pierce Corcoran was killed on December 29 after a pickup truck driven by Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo, 44, veered into oncoming traffic and smashed into his Honda Civic, according to a statement from the Knoxville Police Department.

Pierce, who is the son of Knoxville Fire Department spokesman Captain D.J. Corcoran, was pronounced dead a short time later at the UT Medical Center.

Police said Pierce was driving with his girlfriend, 21-year-old Jade Adams, who was treated for non life-threatening injuries.

Authorities said the crash involved multiple cars and passengers in two other vehicles were not injured.

Francisco-Eduardo has no criminal history.

Knoxville Fire Department Assistant Chief Mark Wilbanks told Knox News that D.J. Corcoran remains on indefinite leave from work.

‘He wants people to know Chapman Highway is a dangerous highway,’ Wilbanks said. ‘People should slow down, don’t text while driving, and practice safe driving techniques on Chapman Highway.’
