A Tigard OR policeman who crashed into a house in September has been cleared of any wrongdoing after an investigation.

34 year old Officer Caleb Phillips was responding to an emergency call with lights and sirens activated, and at a high rate of speed when he was struck by a car driven by 65 year old Clyde Allen Rizzuto of Tigard.   The resulting crash sent the patrol car off the road and into the home.  Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident.  Rizzuto will be cited for failure to yeild to an emergency vehicle; and if you’ve been paying attention to the recent traffic laws that went into effect this summer, failure to yeild to emergency vehicles when they are responding to an emergency have been toughened, and fines increased.
