Elyria Township – Troopers say that three people were injured Saturday afternoon after a girl lost control of her car on Route 2 and it rolled over on the highway.

Trooper Lance Deshuk of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said that 19-year-old Jessica Hackney of Amherst was traveling east on Route 2, east of Middle Ridge, when she said her car began to jerk. “She said that she was in the right lane while traveling east when her car began to slide off the left side of the roadway and into the median where it over turned before it came to rest in the left lane of the westbound lane of Route 2.”

Elyria Township Firefighters responded and treated the three occupants of the car on the scene. With the assistance of Sheffield Township Fire Department, all three were transported to area hospitals – none appeared to have any life threatening injures.

Trooper Deshuk said that before he arrived someone in a truck that was in the area moved the car off the roadway. “I was able to speak with the people when I arrived, they said they moved the car out of the roadway in an attempt to prevent additional incidents.”

Although the crash remains under investigation, Troopers say it is likely that Hackney will be charged with Failure to Control.
