Date of Incident Friday May 12, 2000

Trooper Robert Perez died three days after his cruiser was struck from behind while he was writing a traffic citation on the Ohio Turnpike in Milan, Ohio.

Trooper Perez and the vehicle he had stopped, were in an emergency pull-off when a minivan struck his cruiser, pushing it into the original stopped vehicle. Trooper Perez was transported to a hospital in Cleveland where he died.

The suspect who struck his cruiser attempted to flag down passing motorists, before he sat down in the highway and was struck and killed by another vehicle.

Trooper Perez had been in law enforcement for three years and had been with the Ohio State Highway Patrol for one year.
