Carlisle Township – Screeching tires and a loud bang – then silence. That is what neighbors heard early Tuesday morning on Oberlin Elyria Road across from West River Road. Residents went outside to investigate and found a car buried in the woods and within seconds it was on fire.

Carlisle Township Firefighters responded and found the Toyota Avalon in the trees and on fire – but could not find any victims.

While extinguishing the blaze the two victims appeared along with family members of the passenger.

Paramedics from LifeCare treated the passenger who was lying on the road bleeding from the head. The driver, who at first claimed not to be injured, was taken to a patrol car for questioning. A short time later he began experiencing pain and requested an ambulance.

LifeCare arrived with a second squad and transported 18-year-old Michael Williams of Lorain to Elyria Memorial.

Trooper AJ Torres of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said that Williams had been traveling south on West River Road before the crash. “The driver failed to stop at the sign and attempted to turn west onto Oberlin-Elyria Road when he went off the right side of road and into the trees.” Torres said that Williams was traveling at a rate of speed higher then the posted limit before the crash but was unable to determine the actual speed.

It is likely that Williams will be charged in the crash once the investigation is completed.
