A deer crossing Rt. 301 near Parsons early this morning was the cause of a single vehicle roll over crash. Carlisle Township Fire Department and LifeCare Ambulance responded around 6am to Rt. 301 and Parsons for a truck on its roof. Chief Russ Gardner of the Carlisle Township Fire Department said the driver was thrown from the vehicle approximately 50 feet after striking the deer. The Fire Department had arranged for Metro LifeFlight to land at the scene but due to a long ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) LifeCare Ambulance transported the victim to Elyria Memorial Hospital. Metro LifeFlight later transported the victim from EMH to Cleveland.

Gardner told TMC NEWS that they also responded to Rt. 301 near Slife Rd. approximately 5 hours later for another single car roll over in a ditch. A 16 year old female was northbound on 301 and lost control of her vehicle ending up in the ditch. Central Lorain County Ambulance District transported the female to Allen Medical Center in Oberlin for treatment.

Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating both crashes.
