A two-car crash on South Broadway and E 44th Street in Sheffield Township Wednesday afternoon sent one victim to the hospital in serious condition.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol the Four-Runner was traveling south on Broadway when the driver lost control and crossed over into northbound traffic. The Four-Runner struck the drivers side of the white RAV4 sending both vehicles off the roadway. While the RAV4 spun back onto the road and came to rest at 44th Street, the Four Runner continued through the yards coming to rest two houses away.

Chief Joseph Bandagski of the Sheffield Township Fire Department said that Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate the driver of the RAV4. “She was pinned in there when we arrived on scene so we had to cut the drivers side door off to get her out safely. We ended transporting her to Community Health Partners Emergency Room.” She was later transported to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland by ground, as the weather was too hazardous for helicopters to fly.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the investigation is still ongoing and that charges have not yet been filed.
