Remain at the scene and either use a cell phone to call the police or ask someone around you to call the police. Give an accurate location of where the accident occurred. If you can provide any information about whether anyone was injured or whether there are any hazardous conditions (downed power line, fire, etc.) provide this information to the operator. The more information available, the better the police department and emergency vehicles can respond to your situation.
If no one has done so, call the police. Remain at the scene and the Investigating officer will interview you when they arrive.
If it is an emergency, call 911. Otherwise call (216) 663-1234 to report the crime. The dispatcher will collect the necessary information and assign an officer as needed.

OVI stands for Operating a Vehicle Impaired. Formerly known as DWI, DUI, OMVI, or drunk driving, the Ohio general Assembly changed the statute to OVI in January 2005 to more accurately reflect the scope of the offense since it does not necessarily require “driving” or that the “operation” be in a “motor vehicle.”
- Ohio’s Physical Control Statute, O.R.C. 4511.194, went into effect on January 1, 2005. Physical control is similar to an Ohio OVI charge. It deals with being in a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs of abuse. The main difference between an OVI and Physical Control charge is that Physical Control does not require that the vehicle have ever been driven or started.
- An example of a Physical Control violation is if an intoxicated person decides to “sleep it off” in their vehicle. Often times, the person starts the car and leaves it running while they go to sleep. However, the car does not have to be on nor do the keys have to be in the ignition to be in violation of Physical Control. Having the keys in reach will satisfy the definition of having “physical control”.
No person, being an owner or operator of any vehicle of more than one-half ton capacity such as a truck, trailer, or semitrailer shall park, place, or store, their vehicle on any property or public roadway within the Village, except upon property where the owner of such a vehicle is lawfully transacting business with the owner or occupant of such a property, and except where the vehicle is owned by and regularly used in operation of a lawful business conducted at such property.
