Police: cruiser strikes woman crossing Ohio street

Posted: Updated:

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 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 didn't immediately release additional information Monday.

The newspaper says Cole, of Dayton, Ky., was downgraded to critical condition Monday.
