Sheffield Village – A case of road rage in the parking lot of Giant Eagle on Detroit Road ended with a three-car crash and two people going to the hospital.

Captain Larry Bliss of the Sheffield Village Police Department said while the two vehicles were leaving the parking lot the passenger of the minivan was gesturing to the other vehicle. “Apparently the passenger was flipping off the people in the other car as they were pulling out of the lot and onto Detroit Road. The driver of the minivan was paying attention to the passenger and not the road – she then collided with one car and that car was pushed into the car ahead.”

Chief Jeff Young of the Sheffield Village Fire Department said that although there was moderate damage to two of the vehicles no extrication was needed and the two victims that were transported had only minor injuries.

Bliss said that although the investigation into the crash is still ongoing, it is likely that the driver of the minivan, Dana Smith of Elyria, will be charged with Assured Clear Distance.
