Officer Wayne Mitchell was killed when the prisoner transport van he was riding in was involved in an accident.

Officer Mitchell was one of three officers transporting two prisoners to a medical facility when the van slid on a patch of ice and struck a concrete retaining wall.

Officer Mitchell had been employed with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction for 15 years, and is survived by his wife and son.

Officer Mitchell was selected as Correctional Officer of the Year for 2001 by a vote of his fellow officers after they withdrew their own names from consideration.
