According to a report from NWFDailyNews, a South Walton Fire District (Santa Rosa Beach, Florida) firefighter was airlifted to a local trauma center with severe injuries after he was struck by a car while helping at his own motor vehicle accident scene near State Road 20 Monday morning.

The firefighter, whose name was not released, was rear-ended while driving to work. After that crash, he exited his vehicle and began aiding the people involved in the other car. As he was administering care, a third vehicle drove through and struck both cars, severely injuring the firefighter.
