Ohio Trooper Accidentally Rams Couple on a Motorcycle

2 NEWS Investigates has obtained dash camera video from the car of the Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper who hit a Beavercreek couple on a motorcycle. WDTN filed a lawsuit in an effort to make the video public.

Amy and Corey Waldman were traveling west on U.S. 35 the night of August 17 when their motorcycle was rear-ended by Trooper Jacob Daymon.  Mrs. Waldman, the passenger, had to be flown to Miami Valley Hospital.  Her husband was taken there by ambulance.  They both say had it not been for their helmets they probably would not have survived.  The couple says they have no hard feelings andeven forgave the trooper the next day.

The video, obtained by 2 NEWS Investigates, shows Trooper Daymon’s patrol car directly rear-ended the motorcycle, knocking the Waldmans to the ground. It appears Trooper Daymon took no action to avoid the collision.

Daymon then stopped his patrol car, backed up several yards, and used his car to block the lane where the accident occurred. . .
