Carlisle Township – A driver not paying attention was the cause of a two-vehicle crash Monday afternoon on East Ave.

Troopers say that the driver of a J. Szakal Concrete dump truck was in the southbound lane of East Ave preparing to make a left turn into a driveway when the driver of a Ford Expedition slammed into the back of his truck.

The impact was so forceful it sent the contents of the dump truck out of its bed and all over the road. One witness described the damage to the Expedition by saying it looked like an accordion.

Carlisle Township Firefighters and LifeCare Paramedics treated both drivers at the scene for various non-critical injuries. Both drivers were transported to Elyria Memorial Hospital.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

"not paying attention" only begins to describe this one. How do you miss a dump truck, stopped, in broad daylight and with its turn signal on??
Well, with the way trade-in prices have dropped on these gas-guzzling dinosaurs, you might as well try and total it for the insurance money rather than trade it.

Can not believe that the people making these comments have enough brain matter to move their bodies. Ask a cop...most accidents due to driver inattention usually do not involve cell phones; looking the other way for what ever reason, kids screaming, etc. And I can't believe that someone would believe or suggest risking bodily injury or death to get rid of an SUV.
