BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A firefighter responding to one accident soon became the victim of another.
The Spring Brook Fire Department's Jimmy Stevenson was directing traffic after a minor two-car crash on the Aurora Expressway Tuesday night, when another car lost control and slammed into him.
Spring Brook Fire Department Chief Rich Dzubella said, "There were two guys directing traffic and the one guy jumped out of the way as he noticed the cones that the driver was hitting."
Stevenson was taken to ECMC with hip, leg and possible internal injuries.
That includes failing to move over a lane when approaching the scene, which is required under a law that took effect January 1st.
Dzubella said, "We're out here doing this, volunteer, helping people out that we don't even know, I mean, it could be our neighbors, friends, or whatever, and to have this happen, it's just uncalled for."
