Elyria – Two people were taken to Elyria Memorial Hospital after a3-car collision on Lake Ave near the Coke plant by Rt. 113 Sunday night.

Anthony Horton of Elyria said he was stopped on Lake Ave at a red light (southbound lane) waiting to cross Route 113 when he saw a black Cadillac crossing the intersection. “I saw the car coming at me and thought at first he was going to hit my car. Then he drove right by me in the wrong lane and hit a van that was behind me.”

The black Cadillac struck a minivan that was also in a southbound lane with enough force to push the minivan into a pickup truck that was stopped behind it.

Horton said he got out of the car to check on everyone when he saw the driver of the Cadillac exit the car and go to a nearby tree at Coke to go to the bathroom.

Minutes before the crash Elyria Police Officers were searching the area for a black Cadillac after receiving reports of a reckless driver.

LifeCare Paramedics and Elyria Firefighters treated the passenger of the van and the driver of the pickup truck at the scene. The driver of the van refused treatment or transport and the driver of the Cadillac was taken to the Police Station after failing a field sobriety test at the scene.
