A single car crash Sunday afternoon in Elyria sent one person to the hospital; left a light pole lying on the ground and sent mail flying in the wind.

The crash occurred in the 200 block of Third Street in Elyria and was spotted by Paramedics from LifeCare who were responding to an emergency call on East Ave. with the Fire Department.

Assistant Chief Ron Brlas of the Elyria Fire Department said that while Ladder 7 was passing Third Street on East Ave the Captain spotted the crash and the LifeCare squad. “Once the crew arrived on scene at East Ave the Captain sent two of the men upstairs to that medical call while he and another Firefighter ran down to the crash.”

Chief Brlas said that the female passenger of the car was treated at the scene and transported to Elyria Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. “She had her seat back and was sleeping at the time of the crash, the impact woke her up so she wasn’t sure what had happened.” The wife believed that her husband had dozed off for a moment before the crash.
The crash took down a light pole as well as smashing into a United States Postal Box scattering letter onto the sidewalk. Firefighters on scene were able to retrieve wayward letters and return them to the box.
