A SW Ohio Firefighter was hit by a car while on scene of a crash has lost his leg to amputation.
Firefighter David E. Noble, 72, of Springfield Township (Clark County, near Dayton) is now listed in critical but stable condition at Miami Valley Hospital. He was was standing by one of the vehicles in an initial crash between a pickup truck and large SUV at Fairfield Pike and U.S. 68.
Firefighter Noble became pinned between one of the two vehicles from the initial collision and a third vehicle that “slid through” the crash scene just after 2200 hours last night. The crash remains under investigation but police advise that there is no sign that the driver who struck the Firefighter was impaired.
We wish FF Noble a successful recovery.
ANOTHER reminder of how bad it is out there on all roadways-and even worse since the issues of distracted driving have emerged.
