Elyria – Neighbors living in West Ridge Green Mobile Home Park described the crash as a loud explosion.

A man driving down Fox Chase, the main drag through the park, at a high rate of speed struck a parked car causing it to flip over and almost striking a mobile home.

Witnesses say that when they got outside the driver got out of the car and fled on foot down Golf Way Trail.

While Police were on scene conducting their investigation the father of the driver called saying that his son, Bruce Lender of Elyria, called him saying that he was bleeding and intoxicated but was unable to understand him when he said where he was located. Officers searched the area but were unable to find him.

Nobody in the park was injured in the crash.

Elyria Police received a call from a resident of the park around 7am saying that there was a male lying in the field between the park and the retirement community on Academy Court.

Police arrived and trekked out to the male and discovered Lender lying in the grass. Lender denied being the driver or even any knowledge of the incident. Police took his information and sent him on his way.

Lender has an extensive criminal record according to the Elyria Municipal Court records including a serious crash in Carlisle Township in 2007, OVI, Obstructing and Resisting Arrest.
The Elyria Police Department continues to investigate the crash.
