A Morgantown firefighter is expected to make a full recovery after he was struck by a car while responding to a call.
Fire crews were responding to a fire alarm on Richwood Ave. Wednesday night at 11:15. As the crew was exiting the fire truck, Yasmine Ghantous, 30, of Langhorn, Pa. tried to drive her car around the stopped fire truck. Ghantous struck one of the firefighters, dragging him about 25 feet and running over his leg.
The firefighter was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital and was later released. A second firefighter injured his hand in the incident. He too was treated and released from the hospital.
Ghantous was arrested and charged with DIU with injury. She was taken to North Central Regional Jail pending arraignment.
