TMC NEWS PHOTOS / BRIAN WOODS Elyria – One person was injured after a driver ran a red light at Route 57 and Taylor Street late Thursday night causing a crash.

Witnesses say that 45 year old Jeff Lustek of Elyria was traveling recklessly on Route 57 in a 1998 Dodge Caravan prior to the crash. Lustek then approached the intersection of 57 and Taylor southbound and ran a red light. Lustek then collided with 17 year old Richard Jones as he was making a left turn onto 57 from Taylor Street. Lustek struck the rear portion of Jones’ Explorer causing it to spin and roll over onto its side.

Lustek’s van continued south and struck a light pole bringing it to the ground.

Lustek was treated on scene by LifeCare Paramedics and then transported to Elyria Memorial Hospital with non life threatening injuries. Lustek’s 16 year old passenger was taken to EMH later by family.

Jones was also taken by his parents to EMH to be evaluated.

Police say that Lustek refused a blood test at EMH and has been charged with running the red light.
