Sheffield Township – One woman was taken to the hospital Saturday afternoon after her rented 2008 Honda was struck by a man who was fleeing a Sheriff’s Deputy.

Trooper Charlie Jackson of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said that it all started with a home invasion in the township. “The Deputies were responding to the call and as they were on Elfleda Street they saw a car heading towards them matching the description of the suspect car. The driver of the 2008 red Ford Focus then struck the Sheriff’s car on the right front side bumper.”

After striking the cruiser the Focus headed north on Elyria Ave where they attempted to make a turn onto Grace Ave. While making the turn the Focus struck the Honda. The impact sent the Focus off the road striking a street sign.

The driver of the Focus fled the scene on foot, reportedly with a handgun. The passenger was apprehended by Deputies.

Sheffield Township Firefighters responded to the scene and treated the driver of the silver Honda. She was transported to the emergency room for treatment.

Jackson said that he was in the area and assisted in attempting to locate the driver but was unable.

Editor’s note: Both of the vehicles involved in the crash were Enterprise rentals cars. In fact, the license plates on the cars are identical up to the final number – and those are only off by 2.
