The Facts of the Dayton Car Pedestrian Wreck
Trooper Hill with his trainer responded to Interstate 75 because a car had crashed between exits Ohio 122 and 123. They were standing on the left side of the roadway.
A automobile driver came upon the scene and lost control of his car. The roadway conditions were slick. But that does not excuse a driver from controlling their car. The driver of that car, Andrew T. Combs, 22, of Vandalia, hit the police cruiser then hit officer Hill.
Car Accidents on Snow and Ice
The law is pretty clear in Ohio that you must keep your car under control even on snowy and ice roads. Generally the driver will be found negligent for loosing control even though the roadway was slick with ice and snow. It is important for motor vehicle operators at accident scenes to slow down and not gawk at the wreck, but concentrate on safely getting through the accident area.
