Loveland, Ohio, has about 11,000 inhabitants and is a very quiet village.
It was also a very quiet spring day on the patio of Paxton’s Grill, a small restaurant downtown, before a certain Tobie Ramsey, 25, arrived: not on foot, not for lunch, but at the wheel of a decidedly out of control Toyota pickup.
The security camera video says it all. Ramsey climbs onto the sidewalk, runs over the restaurant patio, smashes everything, then flees without stopping. But he is arrested shortly after by the police.
The real miracle is that no one was hurt, or almost. Pay attention: a couple seated on the left remain petrified, frozen in shock. Three people who were in the way of the vehicle suffered very minor injuries, the police report said – and the dog seen in the video also escaped with great fright.
Now the young and careless driver is accused of three crimes: dangerous driving, fleeing the scene of the accident, causing panic.In front of the judge, he pleaded “not guilty”. For some reason the magistrate didn’t believe him, set bail of $250,000 and ordered him not to drive.
