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.

This brings about one of the largest problems in this city that needs to be addressed. Not the drunk driving .... it's the people walking in the streets. I can't tell you how many times I've almost hit someone wearing black or dark clothing walking in the street, sometimes three abreast. Most of the time there are side walks that could have been used.

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!
