Residents of several areas of Ohio would not be surprised to hear that crashes occur in their neighborhoods. They are not shocked that some stretches of road see far too many car accidents. The shock often comes from the loss of life that accompanies some of these wrecks.

It always complicates matters, but when people die in hit-and-run car accidents, the stakes are often much higher for surviving family members. Some families could get the chance the find some justice for their loss if the fleeing driver is found or comes forward.
With all of the potential calamities that could befall an Ohio police officer while on duty, one more requires addition to the list.
