Ohio State associate head coach and co-defensive coordinator Greg Schiano was cited by the Columbus Division of Police for failure to obey a traffic control device. The citation is a minor misdemeanor offense.
The accident occurred Thursday morning at the intersection of West Lane Avenue and Fred Taylor Drive. Schiano’s vehicle hit a 26-year-old, male bicyclist who was taken to the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center.
The Columbus police said that the victim was transported in critical condition with a head injury, but Sgt. Brooke Wilson, who was at the scene, said at the scene on Thursday that the bicyclist is expected to survive. There has been no update on the condition of the bicyclist.
Schiano is scheduled to appear before a judge on Oct. 5 at 9 a.m. The traffic fine is $55 and, including court fees, the total cost due by Schiano is $152.
