GREENE COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) - 2 NEWS Investigates obtained the audio and computer activity report between Trooper Daymon and dispatch leading up to and surrounding the crash.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol told 2 NEWS Investigates the audio is what the Xenia Post Commander heard as part of the crash investigation.
Not much is said between the dispatcher and Trooper Jacob Daymon before and after he hit the motorcycle August 17, but as we've already established through looking at the crash report, the trooper was speeding and using his mobile computer terminal (MCT) at the time of the crash.
Trooper Daymon referred to as 390 on the audio had just checked out report of a drunk pedestrian, but found nothing. Then it happened. Trooper Daymon hit the motorcycle carrying Corey and Amy Waldman, throwing them to the ground.
Daymon sent a message to the dispatcher indicating he had been involved in a crash with a motorcycle.
The dispatcher let him know that "EMS is in route."
The exchange between the dispatcher and Trooper Daymon is much the same in the MCT activity report. I read it with help from the public affairs commander so I could understand the codes used.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol reports Trooper Daymon's urine analysis results were negative for alcohol and drugs.
OSHP Public Affairs Commander, Staff Lt. Anne Ralston, said phone records were not part of the investigation.
Trooper Daymon is scheduled to be sentenced Monday on a misdemeanor charge of failing to maintain assured clear distance. Ralston said after that, we will be able to see the reconstruction.
