MAN SWERVES TO AVOID CAR
GOES OFF ROAD & STRIKES A HOUSELaGrange – A LaGrange Township toddler was left unharmed Tuesday afternoon after a Ford F 150 struck the side of his Indian Hollow Road home – interrupting his cartoons.
Trooper Chris Aussie of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said that 21 year old Ted Fowler of LaGrange was traveling southbound on Indian Hollow when he took his eyes off the road for only a moment – when he looked up he saw that a car had stopped ahead of him for a stopped school bus. “When he saw that stopped car he swerved to the right to avoid a collision and instead he ended up veering off the right side of the road and striking a house at 17572 Indian Hollow.”
LaGrange Township Fire & Rescue responded to the scene but Fowler refused any treatment or transport. Firefighters did repair some damage to secure the side by side duplex so that the tenants would not have to be displaced.
Fowler was cited at the scene for Failure to Control.
