Elyria – Two people were injured late Tuesday night after a head on collision on Route 113 between Lake Ave and Lorain Blvd.

The crash occurred just before midnight in the eastbound lane at the top of the Rt. 113 Bridge. The collision caused heavy damage to both vehicles and tossed the Jeep Wrangler onto its side. Police say the driver of the Jeep was able to self-extricate while the driver of the passenger car had to be extricated from her vehicle by Elyria Firefighters.

Mike Bridge, Elyria Paramedic Supervisor of LifeCare Ambulance, said both victims left the scene in stable condition but might be flown from Elyria Memorial Hospital due to mechanism of injury.

The crash is under investigation but Police say one of the vehicles is believed to have been traveling westbound in the eastbound lane. A witness said it happened quickly but she remembers seeing headlights coming towards her just before the crash and then just a lot of dust and smoke.

The eastbound lane of 113 was closed down for about 2 hours for the investigation.
