Avon Lake – An Avon Police Officer was involved in a crash this morning on Route 83 between Pin Oak Parkway and Webber Road.

The Officer was on one of the Department’s motorcycles when he collided with a Ford F-150 pickup truck. It is believed that the Officer was working on a domestic call at the time of the crash. Witnesses at the scene say they believe the pickup truck pulled out a driveway into the path of the Officer.

The Officer was thrown from the bike and was pinned under the truck. Firefighters had to use airbags to raise the truck to free the Officer.

Avon Lake Paramedics from the Fire Department treated the Officer on the scene before transporting him to the Avon Emergency Care Center where he was then flown to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland. His condition is unknown at this time but he was conscious and speaking with Paramedics at the scene.
