An Ohio State Trooper is under fire after allegedly ramming his cruiser into the back of a motorcycle and sending a local couple to the hospital with grave injuries.
Newly released dash-cam footage shows the terrifying moment when 2012 State Trooper of the Year, Jacob Daymon, crashes into the motorbike of Beavercreek, OH couple Amy and Corey Waldman. The two riders are thrown onto the hood of Daymon's car before hitting pavement on the night of the Aug. 17 accident.
The creepiest part of this video is that Daymon doesn't slow down or swerve to avoid the collision. He maintains that he did not see the couple before impact.
The footage has only just been released as a grand jury decides whether the trooper involved should face charges.
Directly after the accident, Daymon backed up several yards and used his cruiser to block traffic. The Waldmans were then taken to Miami Valley Hospital were they remain today, still recovering from their injuries.
In an interview with WDTN, the Waldmans attributed wearing helmets to saving their lives. They also said that they have forgiven Daymon for the accident.
However, a relative of the Waldmans told WDTV that the couple is still not doing well. Corey just went through another round of X-Rays and Amy is suffering from a concussion.
Here is a round of semi-graphic photos from during and after the accident. All photos are courtesy of WDTN.
