8/2/17 – A judge on July 25 dismissed the lawsuit against the city of Dayton and a police officer who rear-ended a U.S. Postal Service van in 2015.
The suit, brought by postal service driver Benjamin Jones of Spring Valley, alleged Jones suffered permanent injury and medical expenses.
But Montgomery County Common Pleas Magistrate Kristi McCartney wrote in a July 6 decision that Officer Randy Betsinger was on an emergency call at the time of the crash and did not operate his vehicle in a willful and wanton or reckless manner. WHIO TV
PEN Editor: Our opinion? the policeman is totally at fault which means the City of Dayton should be at fault. In our state if you ram someone’s vehicle from the rear you are automatically at fault. If the USPS employee had rear-ended the police officer in whose favor do think the judge would have ruled?
