Ohio brothers get $235,000 in patrol crash lawsuit

Written by 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The State Highway Patrol has reached a $235,000 settlement in a lawsuit by two southwest Ohio brothers who alleged their vehicle was hit by a patrol car traveling over 95 mph while not using overhead lights or sirens.

The Ohio Court of Claims approved the settlement for the brothers Tuesday. The complaint says Daniel Hardin, of Englewood, was trying to turn left off U.S. 35 in Greene County in April 2013 when the eastbound patrol car struck his car.

The complaint says he suffered scalp lacerations and spine and skull fractures. Passenger John Hardin, of Beavercreek, suffered a lacerated spleen and neck and back injuries.

A patrol spokesman says the trooper was injured but returned to full duty that month. He says the trooper was verbally reprimanded.
