Elyria – Elyria Police Officers took a teen driver into custody late Saturday night after he crashed a car into a building on Broad Street and Washington Ave.

The driver had just pulled out of the downtown McDonalds and was traveling east on Broad Street at a high rate of speed when he attempted to make a turn onto Washington Ave. The tire marks on the road show how the car slide across the intersection and up onto the sidewalk on the northeast corner of Broad and Washington. The car took down a light pole before crashing into the building.

Neither of the two occupants were injured in the crash and Officers took the driver into custody at the scene.

Before removing the car officials from the City of Elyria Building Department and Utilities had to secure the scene. The rear of the car rested on the base of the light pole with loose wires, city employees secured those wires and killed power to the area for extra precaution as Elyria Towing removed the car. City workers also removed the pieces of the light pole

The building that was struck houses the office space that the Barack Obama campaign has set up shop in this week. Let’s just hope Obama is not planning on visiting the office while he is in the area today.

Aw, come on. He just wanted to get home before the fries got cold. Don't you just hate it when you're driving and a light pole and a building get in the way? Need to do something about those things so we have less accidents.
