With harsh cold and snow forecast for much of the state in the next few days, officials in Ohio’s Department of Aging are urging precautions for older people who could be at increased risk of weather-related problems.
State Trooper, Police Officer Injured In First Lady Motorcade
Authorities say a police officer and state trooper were injured when two motorcycles collided Monday afternoon while escorting First Lady Michelle Obama from a campaign stop in Delaware.
The State Highway Patrol says the motorcycles somehow sideswiped each other on State Route 36 east of Delaware as the motorcade headed to an airport. A state trooper and a Genoa Township police officer were hurt in the crash. They were hospitalized in Columbus in stable condition.
The patrol says the police officer’s injuries were more serious than the trooper’s but weren’t life-threatening.
Mrs. Obama was not injured.
