Trooper to receive honor for saving 3 in fiery crash

Trooper Dwayne Dotson of the Ohio Highway Patrol s Swanton Post is to receive a certificate of recognition today for saving three people from a flaming, crashed vehicle.

On May 17, Trooper Dotson was pulling the vehicle over for a speed violation in Williams County when the driver lost control and the vehicle struck a guardrail, flipped over on the median, and caught fire. Trooper Dotson used an extinguisher on the flames and then, with the help of bystanders, pulled the three occupants to safety through a broken window.
