Elyria – A man driving a Jeep Cherokee Sport along I-90 lost control and flipped several times before coming to rest in a ditch full of mud.

Sheffield Village Police were first dispatched when it was reported that the crash occurred on I-90 just west of 254 – but when Officers began checking they discovered the crash closer to the Black River Bridge in Elyria’s jurisdiction.

Police arrived and found a Jeep Cherokee resting on its passenger side in a ditch. Four kids, one on crutches, had pulled the driver from his Jeep before Police arrived. The driver was placed into a Police car until Medics arrived.

Paramedics from Sheffield Village Fire Department treated the driver on scene and later transported him to Elyria Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Witnesses were not sure why the man lost control but said that after leaving the road he traveled about 100 yards before stopping. They also said he had a strong odor of alcohol.

Elyria Police are investigating the crash.
