DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - A captain with the Dayton Fire Department was injured at the scene of multi-vehicle accident on US 35 early Tuesday morning.
Captain Barry Cron was one of the first emergency responders to reach the crash and was struck by another vehicle involved in the chain reaction pileup, according to Dayton Fire Chief Herbert Redden.
Redden said Cron was thrown 20 to 30 feet when he was hit. He remains in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He has been placed on injury leave pending his recovery.
At least 11 cars were involved in the crash at near Gettysburg Avenue.
