“I think he’s dead, I think he’s dead.” Those were the words from one of the first witnesses on the scene of a fatal crash late Thursday night in Lorain. A car traveling east on East 42nd Street at a very high rate of speed first struck a truck then the curb at the corner of East 42nd and Seneca Ave before crashing into a tree.

Lorain Police, LifeCare Ambulance Paramedics and Lorain Fire Department all responded to the scene around 11:45pmm Thursday night but there was nothing that could be done for the driver who was trapped in the car. Approximately and hour later the driver was removed from the car and transported from the scene as Lorain Police continued with their investigation.

Harold Martin said he was sleeping at the time of the crash but his wife was sitting at the kitchen table playing cards. “She was just playing a game of solitaire when she heard the crash and she looked out and saw that it was right there in our yard.” Martin said that he has lived in that house for 13 years and although speeding and running stop signs is a constant problem in his neighborhood, nothing like this has ever happened before. “This is just something else; I guess it was only a matter of time.”
