Driver charged in death of KFD Captain's son transferred to ICE holding

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo, a 44-year-old from Oak Ridge, has now been transferred to a I.C.E. holding facility, after standing before a judge from jail last week.

The KCSO says that Francisco-Eduardo is no longer being held in the Knox County Detention Facility and has been transferred to I.C.E. holding.

Francisco-Eduardo is charged with Criminally Negligent Homicide in connection to the fatal accident on Chapman Highway that killed 22-year-old Pierce Corcoran, son of Knoxville Fire Department Captain and Public Information Officer D.J. Corcoran.

No other court date has been set in the case at this time and remains in jail being held for immigration officials.

Knoxville Police said a Chevy pickup truck was traveling north on Chapman Highway and crossed into the southbound lanes, crashing into a Honda Civic, which caused a chain reaction crash.

Police said the driver of the pickup truck, identified as Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo, a 44-year-old from Oak Ridge, was arrested and taken to the Roger D. Wilson Detention Facility. The Knox County Sheriff's Office arrest records show a hold for immigration (ICE). On Monday, KPD announced he was charged with criminally negligent homicide.

The Civic's driver, Corcoran, and a female passenger, 21-year-old Jade Adams, were taken to UT Medical Center. Corcoran was later pronounced dead. KPD said Adams is bring treated for non-life threatening injuries. Investigators said both were wearing seat belts.

The driver and passengers in two other vehicles were not hurt.

Burial services were held on Wednesday for Pierce Corcoran.

Officials said they are continuing to investigate the crash, which will eventually be turned over to the Knox County District Attorney General's Office.

A spokesperson with KFD told WVLT News that Cpt. D.J. Corcoran was in Memphis when he received the news about his son. Firefighter associations all across the state stepped up to help. Firefighters from Memphis brought Capt. Corcoran to Nashville, where a group drove him to Cookeville. From Cookeville the Knoxville Firefighters Association transported Corcoran home.
