Ohio Trooper Who Hit Motorcycle Put On Desk Duty

An Ohio trooper whose patrol vehicle struck two people on a motorcycle in southwest Ohio has been put on administrative duty while a grand jury considers whether he should face charges.

Authorities say the motorcyclists were wearing helmets and escaped serious injury in the crash last month on U.S. 35 near Xenia.

The Dayton Daily News reports a grand jury in Greene County will decide whether 30-year-old Trooper Jacob Daymon is charged in the crash.

A State Highway Patrol spokeswoman says Daymon has no prior work crashes and has a clean disciplinary record since he joined the agency in 2007.

The motorcyclists, Corey and Amy Waldman of Beavercreek, have said they consider it an accident and have no hard feelings against Daymon. Amy Waldman suffered a broken foot.
