CUBA CITY, WI (WTAQ) - A firefighter dived to avoid being hit by two vehicles at the scene of a machine shed fire near Cuba City.

Grant County sheriff’s deputies said 26-year-old Nieley Daily was stopped on Highway 80 Thursday, when her car was rear-ended by a 44-year-old man who did not notice the traffic control near the fire.

Daily’s car veered into a ditch – and the firefighter who was controlling the traffic had to dive into another ditch to avoid being struck. The firefighter was not hurt, but both drivers were sent to a Platteville hospital for treatment of their injuries.

The alleged rear-end driver, Michael Connolly, was cited for inattentive driving. Daily was cited for not having the required auto insurance on her vehicle.
