CHILLICOTHE, Ohio – A Chillicothe police officer will continue working on the streets after he admits to falling asleep driving his cruiser and smashing into three parked vehicles.

Mike Kraft says he was sitting in his living room watching a movie, relaxing before heading to bed about 5 a.m., when he knew something bad happened just outside his front door.

“I heard a big, loud, metal crash and came to open the door to find out what was going on,” he said.

The police report states that Chillicothe Police Officer Terry Brown was driving southbound along Bowman Road when Brown fell asleep behind the wheel, causing him to drive off the right side of the road, hitting three parked vehicles.

Mike Kraft’s Honda Accord got the worst of it.

The whole back end was smashed in.

He says he think it will have to be totaled.

The force of the crash pushed both Kraft’s Accord and Ford Explorer up onto the sidewalk.

Kraft says with two damaged cars, it will be challenging for him and his wife to get to their jobs.

“Traumatizing may be a strong word, but they are our only means of transportation,” he said.

Chillicothe Police Officer Bud Lytle says the department regrets the crash happened.

He says an internal investigation is already under way.
