Elyria - A two car collision on West River Road Wednesday afternoon was caused after a man was attempting to pull into Market Drive - when it wasn’t his turn.
Witnesses say that 24 year old Maggie M. Roley, of Elyria, was traveling south on West River Road North crossing the intersection of Market Drive - with a green light when 51 year old Emerson Gillespie, of Elyria, was in the northbound lane making a turn onto Market Drive.

LifeCare Paramedics treated and transported one victim from Roley’s car while all other occupants, including two small children, refused treatment or transport.
Police say that Gillespie was cited for failure to yield while turning left.
