Sheffield Township – A Lorain man is facing multiple charges after his wild ride through a Sheffield Township neighborhood late Friday night.

Trooper AJ Torres of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said Maurcie Kimbro of Lorain was first traveling north on Bond Ave when he went through a stop sign at Frankfort, went into a driveway and struck the back of a parked red F-150 pickup truck. Kimbro then backed up and fled the scene.

Kimbro was then traveling west on Frankfort when he went through another stop sign at Vincent Street, busted through a guardrail and into the yard of Ken Farr where a tree stopped the car from striking the house. Farr said that this is the third crash that has ended up in his yard since he has lived there.

Torres said since Kimbro fled the first scene and crashed again a few minutes later they are two completely separate crashes and therefore he will be charged for both sperately. “Trooper Marcum is handling the first hit-skip crash at Frankfort and Bond and I am handling the one here on Vincent. Mr. Kimbro will be charged with OVI, Driving Under Suspension, Stop Sign and Failure to Control and Yield in each crash.”

Farr said after Kimbro struck his tree he tried to back the car up and flee the scene but was unable to move the car. He then exited his vehicle and was going to try and run but neighbors, including the owner of the red pickup prevented him from leaving until Troopers arrived on the scene.

Kimbro was treated at the scene and transported to Elyria Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.
