Men charged with DUI, walking intoxicated

Published: Wed, April 9, 2014 @ 12:43 a.m.


Police cited a man for driving under the influence and the person he hit on South Meridian Road for walking intoxicated in a roadway at about 9:40 p.m. Monday.

Police were called to the 400 block of South Meridian Road for a report of a pedestrian hit by a car. While there, officers determined that David Crawford, 34, of Manchester Avenue, was driving the car that hit the man, Robert Bacami, no age or address given.

Crawford smelled of alcohol and admitted to being at a bar earlier and having a few drinks, reports say. He said he thought he hit Bacami with the mirror on his car after he saw him in the road at the last minute and could not avoid him, reports said. He was taken to the police station and took a breath test, where his blood-alcohol content measured 0.113. The legal limit for driving drunk in Ohio is 0.08. Bacami was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center to be examined. He was cited because he was very drunk and caused the accident by walking in the roadway, reports said.

As a SOBER driver, there have been many times I've come up on people walking in the street - WITH TRAFFIC - that I've almost hit.

Walkers need to walk FACING oncoming traffic so they can see who is coming at them!

True...and these idiots think their tough and they walk as close to the street as possible. Even if there is a sidewalk or open pathway to walk on, these dummies continue walking on the road. Yes, there was alcohol involved here, but on more than one occassion I have nearly clipped a person walking along the road. Hit em...they'll learn.

It seems those in the city have a complete inability to understand a car weighs 10x's what their crack smoking butts do. All they think is if you hit them they'll sue you. They have no ability to understand dead people can't sue anybody.
