UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (WTVN)-- Investigators have seen the dash cam video from an officer-involved crash that killed six people. They say it shows the Upper Arlington police officer, who was on an emergency call with lights and sirens on, had a green light that turned yellow just as he entered the intersection of Riverside Drive and Fishinger Road.

"The Toyota had the red light, actually ran the red light, and stopped in the middle of the intersection and the cruiser struck it," said Perry Township Police Chief Robert Oppenheimer.

A husband, wife and their four daughters died at the scene.

Upper Arlington Police Officer Shawn Paynter, a five year veteran of the force, was responding to a robbery call at the McDonald's on Henderson Road at the time of the 1:30 a.m. crash.

Paynter was taken to Riverside Methodist Hospital with head injuries, but is expected to recover.

Investigators identified those killed as 39-year old Eid Badi Shahad and his 31-year old wife Entisa W. Shameed. The children were 16-year old Shuaa Badi, 14-year old Amna Badi, 12-year old Ekbal Badi, and 2-year old Lina Badi. All were pronounced dead at the scene. The couple, which came to America from Iraq three years ago, also has five sons ages 5 through 18.

"We're all used to seeing adults. You see young children, it has an affect because we all have kids. Several of the officers we had to send home early. We've got counseling available for anyone who requested it or we felt needed it," said Oppenheimer.

He expects it to take several weeks before they know exactly what happened.

Several other officers responding to the robbery immediately diverted to the crash scene, according to Upper Arlington Police Officer Heather Galli. She says the suspect forced his way into the McDonald's through a drive-thru window, showed a weapon, and demanded cash. He left with an unknown amount of money.

"This individual is still at large," she said.

The man could face additional charges related to the crash, but Galli says that would be up to the prosecutor to decide.

None of the people killed were wearing a seat belt and a 2-year old was not in a child safety seat.

The Dash Cam revealed the driver, from Irag, ran a red light. The occupants did not have seat belts on. The 2 year old was not in a safety seat.

Is the Obama Administration at fault for the lack of education of immigrants? I think so! The officer could have been killed also!

I was flamed for mentioning immigrant driver skills in an earlier post. Well, looks like Reader will hate me even more for posting this:

"The driver of the car, Eid Badi Shahad, 39, had a red light and was stopped in the intersection when the Upper Arlington police cruiser hit the car. He had been driving west on Fishinger Road.

“He went through the intersection and for whatever reason he just stopped,” Oppenheimer said.“Whether he saw the cruiser coming or he realized he ran the red light and was going to back up, we’ll probably never know.”

The vehicle just stopped. Obviously, the guy did not know how to drive and he did not protect his family (no seat belts or child safety seat). More than likely, due to the democrats for just letting people come here without any training or learning the language.

Thanks Obama and the stupid democrats for killing people!

Thank God, the policeman will be okay.

This could create a car ban, dangerous weapon. Illegal immigrants could be driving illegal dangerous weapons.

Seemingly lost in all this is 10tv describing the robbery suspect as a "heavy-set black male". I thought suspects of color were not described as such by Channel 10.

Can the robbery suspect (if caught) be charged with their deaths? I think I've heard a similar story like this, and they were.
Lets charge the incompetent cop who IS the one that killed them!!! Siren & lights doesn't give them the right to blast thru an intersection red light at high speed!! Does anyone REALLY believe that a seatbelt will save you when some AH drives THRU your car???? But don't worry!!! The cop will be justified in the end...

Have you ever watched an illegal immigrant or one of the few so-called legal immigrants driving with their phone next to their ear/cheek rambling in some foreign language? Or an enlarged burqa on their head obscuring their view?
