A Milton firefighter trying to help an accident victim became a victim when he was struck in the street…..and he is now fighting for his life in the hospital. Firefighter Antonio Pickens, 44, went to assist one of the drivers involved in a two car accident across from the Milton Engine Company 4 Saturday night.
A black Buick LeSabre heading north towards Boston drove by and struck FF Pickens. Once hit, Pickens went over the vehicle and landed in the center lane of the street. He suffered massive trauma to his body and head. Paramedics transported Pickens to Beth Israel Trauma Center in Boston. Currently, he is in critical condition.
