Car accident injures police officer on Ohio Turnpike

For police officers, working on the highway can be quite hazardous, even in the middle of the day. One officer recently found out firsthand about these dangers when he and a K-9 officer were working on the Ohio Turnpike.

The trooper and the K-9, who are with the Ohio State Highway Patrol, were sitting in their patrol car, which they had parked in the median to observe traffic. This was just before noon on a Thursday. They were close to I-75, right by mile post 67.

While they were observing traffic, a 2004 Saturn Ion came toward them, heading east. The vehicle drifted out of its lane, went off the road on the left, and slammed into the police car.

The trooper, who is 34 years old, was hurt and had to be taken to St. Vincent's Hospital. He was then treated at the hospital and released. The K-9 unit, who is named Muki, did not suffer any injuries.

A young man was behind the wheel of the Saturn that apparently caused the accident. He is 25 years old. The injuries he sustained were more serious than those suffered by the officer, though he did survive. His injuries were described as incapacitating. He was also taken to St. Vincent's Hospital.

There are now pending charges against that 25-year-old driver from Toledo.

Those who have been injured in car accidents, even when the injuries are minor, may still have high medical bills due to transportation to the hospital, immediate treatment and other costs. Therefore, it's good for them to know what rights they have to seek compensation.
