DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Police in central Ohio plan to release details of a report into an officer-involved traffic crash last fall that killed a couple and four of their daughters.
The officer also was injured in the Oct. 18 crash in suburban Columbus. Perry Township police planned to release an extensive report and dash-cam video of the crash on Thursday morning.
The officer from the Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington was responding to a reported armed robbery at a fast-food restaurant when the crash occurred at about 1:30 a.m.
Police said dash-camera video from the cruiser — which had lights flashing and siren blaring — shows the victims' Toyota Corolla had a red light when it reached the intersection and came to a complete stop just before the crash.
