TRUCK SLAMS POLE ON RUSSIA

VICTIM FLOWN TO METRO FROM SCENE

Carlisle Township – A single car crash in Carlisle this morning sent a 17 year old male to Cleveland by chopper.

The victim was traveling along Russia Road this morning when he lost control of his pick up truck and went off the south side of the road crashing into a utility pole. After striking the pole the truck rolled over.

When Firefighters and Paramedics arrived on the scene the victim had already been able to get out of the truck on his own. Paramedics began treating him while a helicopter was on the way to take over care.

Metro LifeFlight landed just down the street on the grounds of the Lorain County Regional Airport and flew the victim to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.

While this afternoon’s expected snow had not yet started to fall – the winds were kicking up and blowing snow from the fields across Russia Road causing it to be slick and dangerous.

The National Weather Service in Cleveland is forecasting anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of new snow for us this weekend. A heat wave is also expected with temps up near 22 on Sunday.


THE NEXT 48

Tonight: Snow. Low around 19. Breezy, with a southwest wind between 15 and 21 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

Good job Carlisle and everyone else who responded. Hope this boy is ok.

Everyone needs to be extra careful. I was driving home last night on Rt. 20 just past 601 when I hit a snow drift(only doing 30 speed limit 55) and spun out into a ditch. I am lucky my car and myself are ok. Please be careful people!!
