The driver involved in an accident that critically injured a Cincinnati Police Sergeant Tuesday morning was driving with a suspended license. Now Cincinnati Police are considering an Aggravated Vehicular Assault charge.

Just before 7 a.m. Raymond Weathers, 35, failed to maintain control of his Chevrolet Tahoe on Columbia Parkway and struck Sergeant Ronald Schaeper's Chevrolet Malibu. The collision caused Schaeper's vehicle to hit a Subaru Outback and a Ford Explorer. 

Weathers was not wearing a seatbelt and was transported by Cincinnati Fire Department to University of Cincinnati Medical Center for his injuries. 

According to Hamilton County court documents, Weathers has five previous court appearances, all connected to driving violations. In 2006 and 2007, he was in court four times on driving with a suspended license charges. In March of 2007, he was charged with speeding. In March of 2010, he was charged with driving without a license and improper lights.

If an aggravated vehicular assault charge is filed, Weathers could face up to eight years in prison. That charge is considered a second degree felony.

Sgt. Schaeper was wearing a seatbelt and was transported by Cincinnati Fire Department to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with critical injuries. Schaeper has broken arms, legs and ribs, and he also has brain swelling. He is in critical condition at University Hospital, but is improving.

Denise Brockman, 42, was operating the 2011 Subaru Outback. She was wearing a seatbelt. Brockman was transported by Cincinnati Fire Department to University of Cincinnati medical Center with minor injuries.

John Cissell, 39, was operating the 2004 Ford Explorer. He was wearing a seatbelt. Cissell was transported by Cincinnati Fire Department to Good Samaritan Hospital with minor injuries.

Schaeper has served more than 20 years in the Cincinnati Police Department for District 1.

Before his time with the department, he worked as a Newport police officer and as a corrections deputy for the Hamilton county Sheriff's office.

In 1996 he was promoted to police sergeant.

The Traffic Unit is continuing the investigation and any witnesses to this crash are asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Department's Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.
