  • TruTv's "Most Shocking"

    I was watching a clip from the show recently where an Ohio State Trooper was rear ended by a car going 70mph. There was also a Trooper backing him up who was nearly struck while out of his cruiser approaching his fellow Trooper. The show said the backup Trooper was ok. However, they didn't indicate the condition of the Trooper who took the direct hit. Anyone know about this awful crash? Thank you.

          March 29, 2002 — Patrol video released from yesterday’s Interstate 71 crash
          Columbus – Tpr. Christopher Wood’s patrol car video captures the impact of yesterday’s crash on Interstate 71 in Richland County, which involved Tpr. Wood and Tpr. Charles Farley. Tpr. Wood was on-foot approaching Tpr. Farley’s cruiser when a vehicle struck both cruisers.

          "The patrol video we released today dramatically depicts why motorists need to move over or slow down when approaching an emergency vehicle," Col. Kenneth L. Morckel, patrol superintendent said. "I cannot express how thankful I am that everyone involved sustained only minor injuries. I hope these images will wake-up drivers to the dangers our troopers face everyday."

          The "Move Over or Slow Down" state law requires motorists to move over or slow down for stopped law enforcement and public safety vehicles. Motorists must safely change lanes away from the public safety vehicle if traveling on multi-lane highways. If motorists cannot change lanes safely, or are on a two-lane highway, they must slow down and proceed with caution. The law went into effect in September 1999.

          Earlier this week, Tpr. Michael Ramsey, from the Milan Patrol Post, was injured when he was struck by a vehicle during an investigation of a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 80 in Lorain County.
