PEDESTRIAN STRUCK BY CAR AT EHS


A car struck a Female trying to cross the street on West Ave by Elyria High School Monday afternoon.

Elyria High School student Justin Willis said that the female, who he believes is also a student at EHS, was crossing from the parking lot heading to the high school. “The traffic here on West Ave was stopped (southbound) to let cars out of the parking lot. The girl cut between the first and second car so the driver of the red SUV didn’t see that she was crossing and then she hit her.” Willis said the SUV wasn’t traveling very fast at all and struck the female on her right side sending her to the ground. Willis, who has plans of being a Firefighter/Paramedic in the future, knew from his health classes to keep the victim stable until help arrived. “I went over to her and knelt down behind her head to hold her head still to prevent any further injuries. It wasn’t long then before the Paramedics and Firefighters arrived.”

LifeCare Paramedics and Elyria Firefighters treated the victim at the scene then transported her to Elyria Memorial Hospital.

The Elyria Police Department is investigating the crash.
