Henrietta 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.

Why would you NOT want to wear a seatbelt???? She is VERY lucky if she did indeed eject from her car. Being a first responder in the community, we see it all the time where someone dies from not wearing a seatbelt. Had they had one on they might have survived! I hope this person is OK and learns something from her mistake(s).

The simple fact that she was ejected and not strangled or hung by the poor excuse the factory trys to pass off as safty equipment.
How can you speculate that she would have been better off with a seat belt on.
What the report clever shrouds in deceptive wording is that she WAS NOT wearing a seatbelt and later that day was released from the medical center with MINOR injuries

Yes, she is very lucky, and to those of you wondering, she is ok. In regaurds to the anonymous comment about the seatbelt, i understand that being a "first responder" you see accidents that because of someone not wearing their seatbelt, they didnt survive the accident. But in her defense, she DID survive with only minor injuries. Each situation is different, and ALWAYS wearing your seatbelt is only speculation that you may or may not survive. I think that instead of making this girl, that obviously has enough on her plate right now, look like a fool for not wearing her seatbelt, we should just thank God she survived and has learned a lesson.

To each there own. Some of us wear the seatbelt and some of us do not. I dont see how it should be a law anyways your in your own vehicle i for one dont like wearing the thing i dont i refuse to. Why should someone on a motorcyle not have to wear one? thats not right they just fly far. like i said to each there own. I am not a fan of them but when i go racing at the strip or autocrossing or even driving on the highway i wear it other than that i dont.

She is lucky. And I do believe that wearing your seat belt should be your own choice if you want to wear it or not. Its a 50/50 chance that you can survive or it can kill you. And if she did have her seat belt on it probably would of killed her, or made her have ALOT more injuries then the MINOR ones that she had.

Dang chickens!
