Oberlin – Elyria had the car crashing into the back of a large orange city work truck with a giant flashing light on the back last week, now Oberlin has tried to tie the record.

Early Sunday morning, around 4 A.M., a man driving westbound on Route 20 slammed his car into the back of a large, white salt truck just west of Route 511.

Oberlin Firefighters braved the bone chilling temperatures and responded to the call and assisted the man until the Paramedics from Allen Hospital arrived and took him to the Emergency Room with minor injuries. Although the front of the car received heavy damage the driver was able to get out of the car on his own and was walking around on the scene when Firefighters and Troopers arrived.

The driver of the salt truck was uninjured. Right after the Ohio State Highway Patrol cleared him he went back on his way, making the highways and streets safe for our vehicles.

Remember if you are driving and see an accident scene ahead, “SLOW DOWN AND MOVE OVER.” Allow Police, Fire, EMS, Tow Services and now SALT TRUCKS, to do their jobs without becoming a victim.
