CAUTION: DANGEROUS INTERSECTION
Lorain – The sounds of two cars crashing into each other is becoming all too familiar to Lorain residents living in the neighborhood of Tower Blvd & Ashland Ave.
Neighbors gathered at the intersection Thursday afternoon after a car that was traveling westbound on Tower struck another car that was northbound on Ashland crossing Tower.
Lorain Firefighters assisted in extricating one of the drivers due to a pinned door. Paramedics treated the drivers of each vehicle and transported both to Community Health Partners for evaluation. Neither appeared to have serious injuries.
Another neighbor, Mary Ann, said she spoke with the elderly woman who was the driver-traveling north on Ashland. “She told me that she didn’t see the girl, she just didn’t see her. She said she looked, but just didn’t see her. It’s because of the blind spot there – I have lived here for a long time so I am familiar with it, but I am still extremely cautious when I am going through there. I just wish the city would do something. About a month ago a man from down the street was involved in a similar crash here and he passed away while at Metro. I just don’t know what it will take to get something done.”
Neighbors say that children are not allowed to play in their yards because crashes have sent cars into the yards – they fear what could happen.
