TRUCK GOES OFF ROAD IN CARLISLE

DRIVER PINNED IN FREEZING TEMPS
Carlisle Township – “It didn’t sound like a car crashing, it was just one loud noise – kind of like a plow hitting the pavement.” That is how one neighbor described the noise that woke him up late last night after a truck crashed across from his home.

Troopers say that the truck was southbound on West Ridge Road, just north of Russia Road, when the driver lost control and went off the side of the road. The truck went into a yard sideways taking out a mailbox then striking a group of trees.

Neighbors and a nearby Deputy Sheriff spotted the truck in the trees and called for Carlisle Township Firefighters and LifeCare Paramedics.

Firefighters had to cut the truck’s roof off to get access to the victim and begin treatment. Once the man was freed from the truck Paramedics transported him to Elyria Memorial Hospital.

Troopers were unable to speak to the victim at the scene due to his condition so they were unable to determine why he left the road. The investigation into the cause of the crash continues.
