this telephone poll. this man saw it 911. or three minutes later the gentleman who hit the pole got out of the truck and i thought he was going to sit down or something and you know and wait for the cops but he just started walking up the street and those would be the last steps the man would take. police tell fox 19 the man at first and then went to his waist pan where the gun was. 5 officers were on fired the shots killing him. martin wishes the man stayed by his truck. i mean this was something that was really nothing i don't know what's behind it you know he could have just sat down and waited there is no sense in losing your life over this. i don't understand that that brings us to the officers who did the shooting. police tell me this is a rough nite for them as well. lt. steve saunders: nobody goes to work at all with the intention of having to use their firearm but if they are faced with a situation where it is a life or death situation certainly that's an option and you have to weigh those circumstances. its a

breaking now... those 911 calls... just released after a deadly wrong way crash on i-71... and tonight cincinnati police... are reviewing those calls to figure out more about the crash... near dana avenue. this is video, taken this morning, of the remains of the deadly accident .. here are new pictures of the woman who police say caused the wreck, 22 year old taryn chin. police say she was intoxicated...they also tested her
according to police she was driving the wrong way on 71 at three this morning... when she hit the car being driven by 47 year old jose arenas head-on, killing him instantly. arenas was a 20 year employee of cintas, working as a service rep for their tile and carpet cleaning division. he was a hard worker, he had a great attitude, really upbeat and always known for going the extra mile in helping anyone in anyway he could chin is scheduled to face a judge tomorrow morning. this was the second, deadly wrong way crash in our area in just the last few weeks. and that's not including an accident in dayton, that killed 5... this past weekend. as our megan o'rourke found out tonight, there's a new technology that could stop accidents like this, before they happened. tricia, traffic here on 71 is moving without any problems tonight. but, earlier today it was the scene of tragedy. the victim, hit head
exactly what this technology you just mentioned aims to do...give drivers time to take action. twisted metal and broken lives. unimaginable destruction that one company believes could've been stopped. 1:30-1:43 "suzanne murtha: we are closer than we've ever been, because we've been working on this since 1999, and we're anticipating a rule at the end of this year that will hopefully require this and we're really able to being able to prevent this" suzanne murtha and her company, atkins, have developed the potentially life saving. here's how it works...later this year the u-s department of transportation is expected to start requiring all new vehicles to have connected vehicle technology...essen tially software that allows vehicles to communicate with one another. the atkin's wrong- way application, can identify when a car is going the wrong way, and send warnings to both drivers. 2:17-2:28 "suzanne murtha: some auto manufacturers are going to, some cars are going to beep, some will have shaking seats...some might have a
over to the left, you're about to have a crash" a notice that could give innocent drivers, enough time to take life saving action. that's because wrong way crashes often involve impaired drivers...just like the accident on 71. the ohio state highway patrol spent 2 years conducting a study...found 70 percent of wrong way crashes, that happened in the evening or overnight, were caused by an impaired driver. 5:56-6:04 "suzanne murtha: at the very least, with the type of technology we displayed we can at least send warnings to all the drivers around them to have them move" murtha tells me she expects the u-s department of transportation to mandate this technology in all new vehicles. quite possibly by the end of this year. rl mo fox19 now. happening now happening now... a top 25 showdown just went final at the cintas center. jeremy rauch is live with postgame

you think that happens in other countries.. not here... but it happens here in cincinnati.. and it could be happening right now. people enslaved-- being sold for sex to the highest bidder-- right here in the tri-state. tonight-- fox19 now investigative reporter, jody barr has the story. color:black"> nats open... "i was forced into doing sexual acts for people i would never have done." perkins would spent days--working the streets--and being sold to men for sex--men from downtown columbus to the suburbs. that all changed around 2010--when vanessa perkins landed in jail--facing another charge of soliciting for prostitution. she was--as she told us--at the

"suicide actually became a real option for me. i actually tried to put too much heroine in the needle so that i wouldn't wake up and i did. and, i kept waking up and i would be so mad at god for that...like, why am i still here...i don't want to be here." "the ladies would come through, i'd give them a jail sentence and 3, 4, 5 months later...i'd see them come back again and again and again." judge paul herbert says it wasn't until a few years ago that he realized--there was something more sinister going on. "i was the guy who thought this was the world's oldest profession." "we gave them a human trafficking assessment tool and it showed that 92 percent of all women charged with prostitution are victims of human trafficking." and it's a similar story in cincinnati. we reviewed human trafficking statistics from the national human trafficking resource center. since 2007--ohio's ranked in the top five in the u-s for reported human trafficking
just last year, ohio reported 289 human trafficking cases--the fourth highest number in the nation--behind california, texas and florida. "you see a girl out there on the corner--you think she's out there by herself, but no...she's being monitored." "pimped out, sold to the highest bidder...just anything you could name." we'll call this woman caroline. she was trafficked in cincinnati for more than a decade--forced--sh e says--to service men in downtown parking lots...apartments... and hotels. she got out about a decade ago--but says--there are still women in the queen city--enslaved in a sex trade. barr: "did you keep the money you earned?" caroline: "oh, no. you were shook down and every dime was taken from you." white;mso- highlight:white"> last year--cincinnati- area victims' centers dealt with 250 trafficking
trafficking victims--they never find their way to recovery. fortunately--that's not the case with vanessa perkins. ...key card swipe... she's been clean and free for 6 years. she's now working for the prosecutor's office that prosecuted her in 2010. "when they told me to put my resume in here, i thought it was a sick joke." vanessa perkins tells me--she's proof that there is a way out for victims of human trafficking. although this problem is growing in the tri- state--there are more ways now that ever to find help. the woman in columbus--what makes her case different than classic prostitution? prosecutors were able to show the
fear she had of her physical abuse. the state determined she--like other trafficking victims--commit crimes like this because of the threat of being beaten--or killed. an 18-year-old has south florida -- accused of practicing medicine without a license. the young man was apparently so successful at it, he was running his own medical clinic in west palm beach. detectives arrested 18-year old malachi love- robinson for practicing medicine without a license... allegedly giving a physical exam to a female undercover officer...
