Troopers see some of the oddest things

November 27, 2009 - Frank Robinson
Received this press release from the Ohio State Highway Patrol and it mentioned this video. A lot of people have seen the dashcam from police cars, but this one is a little different. Read the press release and click on the link to see the video.

BATAVIA – A trooper from the Patrol’s Batavia Post used his cruiser to stop a vehicle traveling eastbound State Route 32 in Clermont County with an incoherent driver.

The trooper was completing paperwork along SR 32 when he noticed a vehicle traveling along the berm. As the vehicle approached at approximately 15 mph, the trooper saw the driver slumped over the wheel and the passenger attempting to steer the vehicle. The passenger began to honk the horn and wave at the trooper as a way to get his attention. The vehicle was heading to a section of road that graded downhill for approximately a half-a-mile.

As the vehicle passed the cruiser the trooper pulled out and sped ahead of the vehicle, placing his cruiser in front of the vehicle and slowly stopping both his cruiser and the vehicle. Emergency personnel were called and transported the driver to a local hospital.
