Penfield Township – What started as a domestic dispute ended with one man, Michael H. Mayne of Wellington, being cut out of a car on Whitehead Road.

Lieutenant Brian Slack of the Wellington Fire District said they received the call as a single car into a tree on Whitehead Road between Webster & Peck Wadsworth. “Apparently this all started at Pheasant Run in LaGrange where several witnesses watched as the man struck several cars in the parking lot then possibly a house close to this location.”

After leaving Pheasant Run a witness began following Mayne on his motorcycle. When Firefighters arrived on scene the biker was sitting in the roadway with his bike aimed at the car that Mayne wrapped around a tree after striking a utility pole near the roadway.

“He said that he watched the man go off the road and strike the tree, he kept telling me how messed up the guy was inside the car.” Slack, who was first on scene for Wellington, notified responding units that extrication would be needed due to the man being trapped inside of the car. “It was a pretty easy and quick extrication, we popped the drivers side door and rolled the dashboard back off of the driver then we were able to slide him out.”

Paramedics from South Lorain County Ambulance District treated Mayne on scene until the medical crew from Metro LifeFlight landed. Mayne was loaded onto the chopper a short time later and flown to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland. Slack said the Mayne was suffering from a head injury and a possible right hip fracture.

The Lorain County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the incidents in Pheasant Run while the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash on Whitehead.
