WOMAN FLOWN AFTER CRASH IN GRAFTON
Grafton Township – An elderly woman was flown with head injuries after a two car collision in Grafton Township.
Trooper Tammy Yount of the Ohio State Patrol said the collision occurred at the intersection of Route 303 and Route 57. The 66 year old female driver of a silver minivan was north on Route 57, after stopping for the sign she attempted to make a left turn onto Route 303 and collided with a black Ford F150 that was traveling eastbound on 303 and had no stop sign.
The impact of the crash ejected the woman from her minivan tossing her into a ditch at the southeast corner of the intersection.
Grafton Township Firefighters responding to the scene immediately requested a helicopter after hearing a victim had been ejected. Toledo Life Flight landed about 15 minutes after Firefighters arrived on scene. The woman was treated on scene by Grafton Township and Eaton Township Firefighters and Paramedics before turning care over to the Life Flight team.
The driver of the Ford F150 refused treatment or transport at the scene. Two kids inside of the minivan were treated at the scene for injuries described as non life threatening and transported to Elyria Memorial Hospital.
Trooper Yount said the driver of the minivan would be charged with Failure to Yield from a Stop Sign.
