WOMAN GOES LEFT OF CENTER ON 57
FOUR PEOPLE GO TO THE HOSPITALEaton Township Firefighters were called out to Route 57 just north of the Grafton Village border for what they were told was a car on fire, when they arrived they discovered a two car crash with 4 victims.
The crash occurred Saturday night around 6:30 p.m. when 42-year-old Patricia Zsigray of Spencer was traveling southbound on 57 heading towards Grafton and went left of center. Heading northbound at that time was 68-year-old James Harsh. Harsh said he saw Zsigray’s car start heading into his lane so he began slowing down.
The crash was not a head on collision, rather a collision of driver’s sides left corners.
Eaton Township Firefighters called for mutual aid from Grafton Village after they realized that four people would have to be treated and transported from the scene. Zsigray received the more severe injuries and was transported by Eaton to Elyria Memorial where Metro LifeFlight flew her to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.
Grafton Village EMS arrived on scene and took over car of Harsh, his 60-year-old wife Gladys and the 9-year-old back seat occupant. All three were taken to Elyria Memorial Hospital to be evaluated with minor injuries.
It is likely that Zsigray will be charged with “Operating a Vehicle Intoxicated” after she is released from the hospital.
