APNewsBreak: Police officer not charged in central Ohio crash that killed couple, 4 daughters

Prosecutors say no charges will be filed against a central Ohio police officer whose cruiser slammed into a car in an intersection, killing six members of a family.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien says that dash-cam video shows Upper Arlington Officer Shawn Paynter's car drove into an intersection in suburban Columbus on a yellow light on the way to an emergency call on Oct. 18. A car driven by a Columbus man already had entered the intersection on a red light and stopped in the middle.

The subsequent crash killed the driver, his wife and four of their daughters.

O'Brien says in a letter to Perry Township's police chief, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, that there is no basis for criminal or traffic charges in the case.
