HIT AND RUN
A crash Friday afternoon on Route 57 sent two people to the hospital and one to jail.
Witnesses say that a man driving south on 57 near Cleveland Street in Elyria rear-ended two cars, then fled. After striking the cars the driver crossed the median, driving south in the northbound lane to Cleveland Street. He then headed south on Wesley until he couldn’t drive the vehicle anymore stopping on Poplar St. Even if witnesses hadn’t seen the man driving the Enterprise rental car down Wesley he wouldn’t have been hard to find as he left a trail of fluid and tire tracks behind.
