Traffic Crash Defendant Found Not Guilty at Assured Clear Distance Trial

Our client was leaving work in a congested area during rush hour when he found himself involved in a three-car crash.  Numerous people were taken to the hospital.  A Columbus Police Officer visited our client in the hospital after conducting his investigation and delivered a citation to our client for failing to maintain an assured clear distance ahead.

Ohio law requires that drivers leave enough room in front of them that they can stop without getting into an accident. When a driver follows too closely and an accident results, the driver may be cited under the assured clear distance statute.

Attorney Chase Mallory entered a plea of not guilty after attempting to negotiate a reduction in arraignment court.   We conducted a trial and after cross-examination of numerous witnesses, our client was found not guilty of failing to maintain an assured clear distance ahead.
