MOUNT VERNON — A Mount Vernon Police officer involved in a July 5 accident that rolled his cruiser will not be cited with any traffic violations, according to City Law Director Chip McConville.
McConville’s decision comes after last week’s release of the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s reconstruction report. The reconstruction was generated to determine the speed Patrolman Brian Weiser was traveling on South Mulberry Street when he was struck by a Dodge Neon at the intersection of Mulberry and West Ohio Avenue. The officer was responding to an emergency call on Blackjack Road.
Physical evidence at the scene of the crash was used to estimate that Weiser was traveling between 42 and 46 miles per hour. The Dodge Neon that struck the cruiser was traveling at approximately 20 to 22 miles per hour. The patrol concluded, based on the physical evidence, that neither vehicle braked prior to impact.
