WOMAN CRASHES CAR INTO POLE

DEVELOPING STORY
Henrietta Township – A 27 year old woman traveling east on Route 511, between Baumhart and Quarry, early Sunday morning went off the right side of the road and crashed into a utility pole.

Firefighters had to extricate the woman from the vehicle before Paramedics were able to treat her. Once freed from the vehicle the woman was transported to Allen Medical Center. A short time later the victim was transported by Toledo Life Flight to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland where her condition is unknown at this time.

A man who lives at the corner of 511 & Baumhart said he heard the crash – β€œIt sounded like a bomb going off.” The resident said that since a traffic light was installed at 511 & Baumhart crashes have dramatically decreased.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

It is so nice to see all the EMS and fire personnel wearing reflective clothing to ensure their own safety on this call and the bike call!!!!!

Somebody has way to much time on their hands if they're going through every gallery to check and see if LifeCare employees are wearing their vests.

As of November 24, 2008 the National Highway Administration will require they be worn when working on or near roadways. Some departments are ahead of the game and for good reason. It is called SAFETY.

Who said they were going through EVERY gallery to check for reflective vests? I'm pretty sure their comment only mentions TWO stories.

I think you have too much time on your hands for leaving such a ridiculous comment.

It's true that the Federal Highway Administration is requiring all emergency responders to wear approved appearal. Most turnout gear used by fire departments have enough relective striping to comply with the law(per the manufacturers). Also, the law applies to all first responders working within the right-away of a federal-aid highway. The law does not apply to surface streets.

In my humble opinion, though, Every first responder should wear the vests everywhere at ALL times. You can never be too safe.

Anonymous complaining about the comments regarding vests-- you would probably be the same person who comments when a first responder would be injured or killed claiming didn't anyone notice that nobody wears vests!!! Congratulations to ALL departments who are practicing SAFETY first!!!
