Dayton firefighter recovering after being hit by car

DAYTON, Ohio - An Ohio fire captain is recovering at a hospital after he was hit and thrown 20 to 30 feet by a vehicle that lost control on a slick roadway.

Dayton fire Capt. Barry Cron's condition was unavailable, but the fire department said his injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.

The Dayton Daily News reports that Cron was speaking to a victim of a crash who was in a vehicle on U.S. 35 early Tuesday. That vehicle was then struck by another, and it pushed the first vehicle into Cron.

The crash, which occurred just before 5:30 a.m., created a pileup that involved 12 vehicles. Snow and ice led to multiple crashes throughout the region.
