Officer Charged Had Previous Driving Issues

A police officer who drove through a red light while racing to an emergency call, plowing into a van and injuring six people, struggled with some of the skills needed for police work, including responding to emergencies, according to his personnel files.

Officer Ryan Kiely, who has since resigned, had trouble with Code 2 — or emergency — responses, orienting himself in town and officer safety, among other things, according to the personnel reports released by a lawyer for one of the crash victims.
