LaGrange – An early morning crash on Indian Hollow Road sent one woman to the hospital by helicopter.

Assistant Chief Dan Jackson of LaGrange Township Fire & Rescue said that it is unclear at this point why the woman went off the road. “The woman was traveling north on Indian Hollow Road around 8:30 this morning and went off the right side of the road. We are not sure at this time why she went off the road.”

Chief Jackson said that the 52 year old driver was the only occupant in the minivan at the time of the crash. “Once she went off the road she plowed through a ditch, snapped a pole and then struck a tree. We were able to remove her through the passenger side without having to use any extrication tools on the car.”

Throughout the ordeal the woman was in and out of consciousness and suffered a head injury from striking the windshield during the crash.

Paramedics from LaGrange Township Fire & Rescue treated the woman at the scene then transported her to Community Park in LaGrange. Metro LifeFlight landed at the park and took over care, flying her to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
