Sheffield Village – One female occupant of a Ford Explorer was injured Friday afternoon after another vehicle cut the Explorer off causing it to go off the highway.

Police say that the Explorer was traveling eastbound on I-90 in the fast lane, just east of Route 254, when the driver of a pickup truck traveling in the slow lane changed lanes and clipped the Explorer. The collision caused the driver of the Explorer to go off the road and into the median where it rolled over at least once before coming to rest back on its wheels.

Firefighters from Sheffield Village Fire Department treated and transported one of the occupants from the Explorer to Avon Emergency Care Center. All others involved denied injury and refused treatment or transport.

The eastbound fast lane was closed down for about an hour.

Police cited the driver of the pickup for the illegal lane change.

The best part of the story you can see in photo #8 in the gallery where both driver’s shook hands before leaving the scene.

I couldn't agree more about the handshake. I applaud both men for being civil and composed in a stressful situation. There's such an acceptance of road rage being "just the way it is" these days. But really, it doesn't need to be that way. Kudos to these men.
