Gov. Kasich uninjured in minor 4-vehicle accident

Published: Tue, April 24, 2012 @ 7:33 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Gov. John Kasich was involved a minor vehicle accident today just outside downtown Columbus, but was uninjured, a spokesman said.

Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols said four vehicles were involved, but he called the incident a minor fender bender.

The first-term Republican governor’s doctor was to examine him as a precaution, Nichols said.

Two administration staff members, a JobsOhio employee and the state trooper driving the vehicle also were not hurt.

Nichols said he was not aware of any injuries from the occupants of the other vehicles, which included a charter bus.

Kasich’s sport utility vehicle was traveling north on Interstate 71 around 4:30 p.m., when traffic just north of downtown was moving slowly.

Nichols said a bus rear-ended the vehicle directly behind Kasich’s SUV, leading to a series of collisions that pushed the SUV into the vehicle in front of it. He said the accident caused minor damage to the governor’s vehicle.

Columbus police are investigating and compiling the police report, Nichols said.

A spokesman for the Columbus Police Department said he had not yet received any information regarding the accident.

It's a good thing that Gov. Kasich was not driving because there would be no end to the garbage that the Unions and Democrats would sling at him.

What the story doesn't tell you is that one of the responding officers was the one Kasich called an idiot!! You can't make this stuff up!! Shame on ANY Ohioan, R or D, who voted for this moron. How long until he is voted out??

Ironic???? Coincidence????

Finding it interesting that Gov. Kasick delivered harsh words like "Idiot" when referring to a police officer, and as Ohioians shook their heads and thought hmmm... he may need that good officer one day.
He warned folks to "get on the bus or you"ll get run over"!!! Hmmm...Frankly, it appears like this bus came very close to HIS suv! Strange turn of events, eh? Yikes!

If we could teach the POTUS the fiscal discipline of Gov. Kasich, the country may survive.
