Video Of A College Basketball Player Getting Hit Head On By A Cop Car As She Crosses The Street
Ok, so Ohio Wesleyan women’s basketball isn’t exactly a “powerhouse program,” but that doesn’t make this story any less crazy. Junior shooting guard Caroline Welker, who was home for Thanksgiving with her family in Delaware, Ohio, was just walking across the street (at night, mind you) when Officer Mark Jackson (no, not that one) struck her with his cruiser going about 15 miles per hour. Welker claims she sustained a concussion and some scrapes and bruises, but nothing too severe (like, say, a freaking concussion).
Here’s Delaware Police Chief Bruce Pijanowski’s statement:
[WNCT 9] “In the time since the incident that occurred on 11-28-13 at 12:21 AM, our primary concern has been for the continued recovery and health of Caroline Welker. As protectors of the public, it is extremely upsetting that she was injured. The officer involved, Mark Jackson, has been cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian. Ofc. Jackson is a hard working and dedicated officer, serving with the Delaware Police Department for ten years.
“Ofc. Jackson acted appropriately after the incident. He immediately called for a medic and rendered first aid. He fully cooperated with the investigation. Pursuant to standard procedure, a urine sample was collected for analysis, the results of which are still pending. We do not anticipate that alcohol or drugs were any way involved in this incident. He does have a previous caution and counseling for a crash that occurred on Nov. 26, 2013.”
