LORAIN, OH (WOIO) - A man accused of critically injuring a city worker while driving impaired last month pleaded not guilty to all his charges Tuesday.

"I'm very sorry for what happened. It was an accident," said Jerrad Londo in the courtroom. His apology came with a dismissive air.

Lorain Police say Jerrad Londo lost control of his Ford Taurus while heading eastbound on East 28th near Pearl and struck a parked Lorain utilities truck. The crash pinned worker Calvondo Smith between the truck and Londo's car.

Police say Londo did not have a valid license. His charges include OVI, driving under suspension and failure to control.

This is another example of someone with several DUIs getting behind the wheel, driving, and putting someone in the hospital.  

Smith was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center with critical injuries. According to heartbroken family members, Smith is still recovering and will need to undergo therapy. He's having a hard time remembering simple things and has very bad head trauma.

The not guilty plea is something Londo has entered several times before for various crimes, including theft, drugs and, of course, OVI. This isn't his first time; this isn't his first DUI. It's hard to say what it will take to get through to Londo; jail, license suspensions, and fines have not worked.  

The night of the incident, Londo posted a selfie taken after the accident on Facebook, almost bragging.
