Amherst Township – An Oberlin woman was injured after she crashed and rolled her car on Oberlin Road, north of Route 113 Thursday afternoon.

Trooper Mandy Rodriquez of the Ohio State Highway Patrol 66 year old Nancy Mooers of Oberlin was traveling north on Oberlin Road when she lost control of her Kia Rio and went off the right side of the road just before rolling over coming to rest on its roof.

The problems for Mooers began a short time before the crash Rodriquez said. “One of the witnesses stated that he helped Mooers get her car out of a ditch on Oberlin Road near Russia Road. After helping her he was concerned that maybe she shouldn’t be driving but she told him that she was fine and left.”

The witness began following Mooers on Oberlin Road but told Rodriguez that at some point she just took off. By the time he caught up to her she had already crashed.

LifeCare Paramedics began treating Mooers, one Paramedic climbed into the overturned car to assist Mooers while South Amherst Firefighters assisted in extricating her.

Once out of the car Mooers was transported to Elyria Memorial Hospital where she was later taken by ground to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.

Rodriquez said no charges have been determined at this point while the investigation is ongoing.
