Police say there are differing accounts: did a picketer hit a car, or vice-versa?
(Strongsville) -- Day two of the teachers strike in Strongsville, and police are trying to sort out an incident that happened on the picket line in front of Kinsner Elementary School on Tuesday morning.
Police chief Jim Kobak tells WTAM 1100 there are two different stories being told.
Chief Kobak says a parent was trying to drop her child off at the school, but the driveway was blocked by picketing teachers. The parent says she honked her car's horn, and tried to ease her way into the school's driveway. That was when, she says, one of the picketing teachers banged on the hood of her car.
The picketing teacher says that while the parent was driving into the school's driveway, she was grazed by the parent's car.
Chief Kobak says the picketing teacher was not seriously injured, and went right back to the picket line after the incident.
They're still questioning other witnesses, and the chief is hoping to obtain video of the incident.
This is the first incident during the two-day strike in which police were called in. The chief says even though picketers have been vocal, they are listening to police commands.
