Widow mourns the loss of husband killed in high speed chase

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The family of the taxi driver killed in an overnight crash in downtown Cincinnati is in mourning Wednesday.

The family called the accident "senseless" saying they believe that police should have called off the chase that ultimately resulted in an innocent taxi driver's death along with his passenger when the driver of a stolen vehicle struck them at full force.

"These people were running from the cops," widow Kathy Sidi said of the driver who was operating a stolen vehicle. "If the cops had just let them go... Instead of stealing a car they stole my husband and another lady's life."

Mohamed Ould Mohamed Sidi was originally for Mauritania, Africa. Kathy said he regularly sent money back home to family.

She says she met her deceased husband when they were both working as taxi drivers at CVG airport.

"He was one of God's angels on earth. He was one of the sweetest, kindest most patient men in the world.  He was smart and funny," Kathy said through tears. "He was just the most loved person I know. Everybody that knew him loved him."

Kathy says he often worked late nights to make more money since overnights usually meant less completion for fares. She say she always worried about something happening to her husband, but never a tragedy of this nature.

Kathy says this summer they would have celebrated their 8th wedding anniversary. She says her husband had just gained U.S. Citizenship back in October 2010.
