TEEN DRIVER ROLLS CAR ON BAIRD RD
SPEED WAS A FACTOR IN CRASHHenrietta Township – A teen driver lost control of her car Monday evening on Baird Road, just south of Garfield, just before rolling it into a ditch.
Trooper Lance Deshuk of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said the teenager was northbound on Baird Rd when she lost control and went off the right side of the road. “When she came back on the road she over corrected and went into a ditch at which time her 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse rolled over coming to rest in the field.”
Paramedics from Central Lorain County Ambulance treated the driver and transported her to Allen Medical Center in Oberlin. A helicopter was requested for the teen but was later canceled.
Deshuk said that the teen, who is from Wakeman, was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash. He also said that speed was a factor in the crash.
The crash still remains under investigation.
