DAYTON, Ohio — Early Tuesday morning Dayton firefighters responded to a motor vehicle collision that set off multiple collisions, one that sent a captain flying into a guardrail.
Capt. Barry Cron sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries while working what would become an 11-car pile up. Firefighters were working on an overturned vehicle that came to rest against the center divider on U.S. 35, when a pickup truck hit that vehicle.
As Capt. Cron was checking on the pickup's driver, another vehicle slammed into the truck, throwing Capt. Cron into the center guardrail.
According to FOX 45, Capt. Cron began his career with the Dayton Fire Department in June 1992 and was promoted to captain Nov. 13.
