Allegedly Drunk Ohio Firefighter Hits Cruiser

CINCINNATI --

A Cincinnati firefighter was injured Wednesday morning after crashing his motorcycle into a state trooper's patrol car.

State troopers said Nathaniel Griffith Jr., 30, was attempting to enter northbound Interstate 75 from Sharon Road when he slammed into the back of the patrol car.

Griffith was wearing a helmet and suffered minor abrasions to his leg, and he was taken to Bethesda North Hospital for treatment.

Troopers said Griffith had been drinking prior to the crash, and he will be charged with operating a vehicle under the influence.

Trooper Christina Hayes, who was inside the patrol car that was struck, was not injured in the crash.
