  Original Published: 9/12/2013 An Ohio trooper isn't talking, after a dramatic collision with a motorcycle. That accident sent two people to the hospital. Now, they are talking about the painful moment of impact. Pam Elliot has the story. Greene County Prosecutor Steve Haller calls it "dramatic." The video fromo the cruiser of Trooper Jacob Daymon shows him driving west on U.S. 35 on Saturday, Aug. 17, just before 10 p.m. Then, suddenly without seeming to slow down, the trooper rear-ends a motorcycle. It flips several times before dropping out of sight. The car appears to be smoking. The audio kicks in as the trooper activates the flashing lights. The Highway Patrol says that is standard procedure. You can hear the trooper ask the couple if they're alright. They were later identified as Corey and Amy Waldman. You can see the trooper several times in the video, checking out his car, another time running to put ouot a small fire. I talked to Trooper Daymon to hear his account of what happened and he said he was advised by an attorney not to speak with anyone about it. I tried to reach the Waldmans as well and a relative told me they're not doing very well. He was having X-rays done and she was suffering from a concussion. @ News was the only station to speak with the couple the night after the crash. They described what you can't see on the video. "I think I went off to the left side," says Corey Waldman. "I couldn't see her at all and we just slidm, and slid, and slid. The only time I wouldn't hurt for two seconds is when my helmet would hit the ground." The Waldmans credit their helmets for saving their lives.
