OH: November shooting into car raises safety questions

December 9, 2013

Without warning, the front passenger-side window of the moving vehicle in which Julie Husband was traveling shattered.
Mrs. Husband, who was grading papers on the Ohio Turnpike during the long drive from Iowa to New York, was shot.
Since the Nov. 24 shooting, troopers from the Ohio Highway Patrol have been investigating, trying to figure out how and why Mrs. Husband, 47, ended up with a 12-gauge shotgun slug in her jaw. She was riding in the front seat while her husband was driving.
Nov. 24 was the second day of a two-day youth hunting season.
John Windau, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife, said officials there were not aware of the shooting.
In general, there are several hunting accidents reported every year, with one fatal shooting so far this year. Last year, 15 injury incidents were reported to Division of Wildlife officials; in 2011, 12 such incidents — one of them fatal — were reported, Mr. Windau said.
