Camden Township – A semi & minivan collided Wednesday afternoon at the intersection of Route 511 & Route 303. One man was Lifeflighted from the scene while his wife was taken by ground to Allen Community.

Troopers investigating the crash say that 63 year old Tony Zenner was traveling west on 303 and failed to yield a posted stop sign. Semi truck driver Ahmednur of Columbus was traveling south on 511 and struck Zenner as he rolled through the intersection.

Camden Township Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to pull the passenger side door off the minivan so Paramedics could treat Zenner’s wife. While Firefighters were working to free the woman a helicopter from Toledo was landing at a nearby field.

Paramedics from Central Lorain County Ambulance District and LifeCare Ambulance treated the victims in the minivan while Ahmednur refused any treatment or transport.

Zenner was flown to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland and his wife was transported by ambulance to Allen. Both were treated and released.

Troopers say that Zenner will be charged with Failure to Yield a Stop Sign.

How frighteningly similar these pics look to the accident on June 5th, 2008 of the scene at 301 and Parsons when a van and semi collided.

The people in the minivan are my friends. They are recovering well. On another sad note, one of their two dogs with them died in the accident. The other got a dislocated hip - things the news didn't report in the article.
