Driver Charged With OVI After Hitting Police Car

(Willoughby Hills) - A 41-year-old Euclid man has been charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, after, on Saturday evening, his pickup truck ran into a Willoughby Hills Police cruiser.

The police cruiser was stopped along I-271 near the I-90 split, while police were dealing with a disabled vehicle blocking a lane. Police were putting out flares to warn drivers, when a pickup truck's driver ignored the warnings, and hit a police cruiser in the rear.

Neither the driver, or any police officers were injured. The driver of the truck was charged with OVI, as police believe he was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
