Sheffield Township – Police and Firefighters are keeping busy these days with rear-enders around the county.

In Sheffield Township Thursday afternoon Firefighters were called to the intersection of North Ridge Road East & Liberty Ave (near the new Cathy’s Ice Cream) for a 3 car collision. Employees of the Ice Cream stand said they heard the crash, looked out the window and saw smoke coming from one of the vehicles. They said they quickly called 9-1-1 then ran to the cars to make sure everyone was ok.

Cars were stopped in traffic when a Ford Focus rammed into the rear of Dodge Neon pushing it into the rear of a 4 door Oldsmobile.

Shortly after the call was made to 9-1-1 about the crash – there was another rear-ender just two blocks west on North Ridge Road in front of St. Vincent Elementary involving two cars. There were no injuries reported at that crash.

Firefighters treated and transported 3 victims with non-serious injures from the first crash to area hospitals.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating both crashes.

Editors Note: Cathy’s Ice Cream stand turned into a triage area for the victims of the first crash. Firefighters examined the victims under the shade of the colorful umbrellas before transporting. The staff at Cathy’s also treated the Firefighters to ice cold water and ice tea and things were wrapping up. KUDOS to Cathy’s for that show of kindness.
