A volunteer firefighter and former high school basketball coach, Murphy was a popular member of his local community of Loogootee, Indiana.
As he opened the passenger door of his vehicle to retrieve some protective gear he was struck by another auto.More news: Kim Kardashian criticized style of his sisters: "They look like clowns"
