An Ohio woman was killed after she was struck by a police cruiser early Thursday morning in Dayton. The cruiser, driven by a 32-year-old deputy, was traveling westbound on Needmore Road when he hit the 43-year-old Dayton woman. A sergeant from the Ohio State Highway Patrol has stated, 'It would have been the same thing if anybody would have been driving - not necessarily just a deputy. It's a dark intersection, the roadway is dark there's no real businesses here that light up the area, and I think this would've happened to anybody. It just so happens it happened to a deputy.' The Harrison Township deputy was making his normal rounds, no lights or sirens, when he reports that the woman ran out in front of his cruiser. The devastating collision cracked the windshield of the cruiser and set off the airbags, which sent the deputy to Good Samaritan Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released.When emergency crews arrived, the woman was lying in the road and pronounced dead at the scene. When accidents occur involving a police officer, it's required that another officer is called to the scene to right the report in order to assure there's no bias. The investigation is ongoing and state troopers believe alcohol may have played a part in the wreck but that has yet to be confirmed by autopsy. Witnesses report that the woman may have been at a bar earlier in the evening and had been walking back and forth across the street. And it had been reported earlier to Montgomery County Dispatch Center that someone had been crossing the road in the area prior to the 12:11 am accident.
