Motorist flees Kennedy Heights crash involving officer

KENNEDY HEIGHTS, OH (FOX19) -

A Cincinnati police officer was taken to a hospital with minor injuries after his cruiser was involved in a crash early Monday, Cincinnati police said.

The officer’s cruiser was struck on the right side by a white sedan that entered the intersection of Kennedy Avenue and Woodford Road at 1:05 a.m., said Lt. Matt Hammer, the night chief.

The officer was on duty, but he was not on a run and the lights and siren on his cruiser were not activated.

“It appears this crash may have occurred along the lines of a normal vehicle accident,” Hammer said.

The other motorist exited the sedan, ran off and remains at large.

The person’s description was not available.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
