A spectacular crash in Elyria Sunday afternoon sends three people to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash occurred in front of Elyria Memorial Hospital at the intersection of East Broad Street and East River. Assistant Chief Ron Brlas of the Elyria Fire Department said the driver of the blue F-150 was west on East Broad heading home from church at the time of the crash.

Robin McCallie, a Nurse at Elyria Memorial was heading to her car in the parking lot at the northeast corner of the intersection when she witnessed the crash. “I saw the blue truck heading west on Broad Street heading towards downtown and the white truck was crossing East River Street, and I don’t know what the traffic lights were doing, but then the blue truck t-boned the white truck and it rolled over and the blue truck went into the building.” McCallie said she saw the driver of the white truck get out on his own and people from inside the building were coming out and assisting the people in the blue truck so she immediately called 9-1-1.

Elyria Firefighters and LifeCare Paramedics treated three victims at the scene and transported to EMH. The passenger of the blue truck was later flown to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.

The Elyria Police Department is investigating the crash.

Just think that these are people who probably took a driver's ed course and then had to pass a test to get their licenses. If you want a really scary thought, think about the people who never had driver's ed or had to take a test. My dad told me that when he got his first license, you just walked into the local license bureau, plunked down a quarter (yes, that is 25 cents folks) and you got a license to drive. Although he no longer drives (which is a blessing to the rest of us in the family), there are many people out on the roads who are still driving who never had any training or testing.

wow... in front of a hospital too?
how incredibly retarded. first off, both trucks look like crap before hand from what it looks like so the idiot who decided to blow the light(which is probably what happend) did himself a favor. at least there was no big injuries otherwise this would have been really sad. God does have mercy on church goers.

God does not only have mercy on church-goers..He has mercy on all. I'm glad my friend was spared in this accident, and the other man, too.
