Penfield Township – Residents living near Route 303 & Quarry Road say that they hope the state will do something about the dangerous intersection. Residents were brought out of their homes late Sunday night after a two car crash ended up in one of their yards.

Trooper Lance Deshuk of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said that 24 year old Bobbie E. Simmons of Oberlin was traveling west on 303 when her Jeep was struck in the intersection by 38 year old Lisa Asbury of Cleveland. “Simmons crossed the intersection when Asbury failed to yield a stop sign and struck her passenger side pushing both vehicles off the road and into the yard at the northwest corner of the intersection.”

Firefighters from the Wellington Fire District and Paramedics from Central Lorain County treated both drivers at the scene. Chief Robert Walker said that both drivers were able to get out of their cars before Firefighters arrived.

Neighbors ran to the scene after hearing the crash assisted the victims until Firefighters and Paramedics arrived. “We were very concerned about the lady in the Jeep because she said that she is 32 weeks pregnant. She had gotten out of the Jeep on her own and walked back up to the road where she was sitting.”

Paramedics transported both victims Allen Medical Center in Oberlin where they met with two helicopters from Metro. One was flown to MetroHealth Medical Center while the other refused to fly so she was transported by Ambulance to Cleveland.

Trooper Deshuk said that Asbury will be charged with Fauilre to Yield a Stop Sign.
