Police: cruiser strikes woman crossing Ohio street

CINCINNATI (AP) — Police are investigating a crash involving a police cruiser that struck a woman as she was crossing a Cincinnati street.

A preliminary Cincinnati police report says 36-year-old Natalie Cole was not in a marked crosswalk when she was hit Saturday night.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/1hAaHVm ) that investigators say Officer Orlando Smith was driving the cruiser with the emergency lights and siren activated while responding to a call for help from an officer holding two suspects at gunpoint.

Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell said Monday that preliminary investigations indicate Smith was operating his cruiser in an acceptable manner.

Blackwell also said that Cole, of Dayton, Ky., was upgraded back to stable condition from critical condition Monday afternoon.
