A relative of mine Had a crash, at night, on Benedict Rd. in Washington County a couple of years ago. The OSHP trooper, that responded to the call, had to travel from Macksburg to near Fleming, which took a while. He explained that he was the only trooper on duty in ALL OF Washington County that night. Think about I-77, US Rt. 50, State Rts. 60, 550, 7, 26, 555 and 339 PLUS all the county roads and having ONLY ONE TROOPER ON DUTY to cover that much mileage.

I would like to know when you saw a Highway Patrolman ever help you get gas or help you fix a flat tire ?? They tell you "I will call someone"

Lt. Pfeifer was not helpful nor was she friendly on the two occassions I had to call the state patrol. Welcome Lt. Smith and glad your family has chosen Marietta to reside.
