Sylvania PD to honor plow driver for stopping suspected drunk driver | Community Spirit
SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) - Sylvania Police say they plan to honor an ODOT plow driver to took action to stop an allegedly drunk driver traveling the wrong way on the highway, even as the driver says he was just doing his job.
Police say plow driver George Seambos was turning around in the median of US 23 near the Ohio Michigan state line just after 2 a.m. Saturday when he saw a car going the wrong way in the southbound lanes. Seambos pulled into the road, forced the driver to turn around, and then followed him off the highway and took the keys from his car at a stop light, police said.
Despite putting himself in potential danger, Seambos says he was just doing his job: keeping the roads safe for drivers.
“I'd probably do it again, like I said that's what I’m there to do, and I feel good about myself knowing I saved him or saved the next family that was behind him," said Seambos.
The accused wrong-way driver, 64-year-old Dennis Zika, has been charged with OVI.
