DAYTON, Ohio —

An Ohio fire captain responding to a crash on an icy road has survived being struck by a vehicle and thrown 20 to 30 feet.

Dayton fire Capt. Barry Cron was speaking to a victim of a crash on U.S. 35 before daybreak Tuesday as snow fell. Moments later, another vehicle lost control on the roadway and struck the first truck, which slammed into Cron.

WDTN-TV reports that Dayton police Officer Jason Ward and two firefighters carried Cron away from the pileup.

Ward says: "He raised his arm at one point, but he never said anything to me."

Cron was released from a hospital Wednesday night.

The crash created a pileup that involved 12 vehicles. Snow and ice led to multiple crashes throughout the region Tuesday.
