A Perkins police cruiser was struck just before midnight Saturday evening at Perkins Avenue and Campbell Street.

Binghong Zhou, 21, of East Lansing, Mich., said she was trying to turn onto Perkins Avenue from Campbell Street when she struck the cruiser’s passenger side rear tire and quarter panel. “I did not see the police car until I hit him,” Zhou said when contacted in Lansing.

The cruiser was driven by Officer Joe Bauman. Zhou had been at Cedar Point for the day. No one was hurt in the crash, which is being investigated by the Sandusky post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

No citations have been issued.


Stop It

That time of the night with headlights, parking marker lights, etc. and she couldn't see him? Not to mention Perkins and Campbell both have street lights? Did the roller coasters distort her vision?


Ms. Zhou might need more drivers education. Wow! She needs a citation


Wow, Rebuild Sandusky must be really excited. After weeks of police blotter items about locals robbing, beating, assaulting, shooting, and even killing each other, FINALLY a tourist stepped out of line. Your cause is vindicated!


I hate tourist!
