Elyria – Officers in Elyria were dispatched to a non-injury crash Friday night on Tillotson and the 49th Street Bridge. What began as a seemingly routine call quickly escalated as calls to Elyria Police Dispatch reported one driver was threatening the other driver.

When Officers arrived on scene they first separated the two parties to find out what happened.

The crash itself occurred just before 7 p.m. Friday night when Jennifer Kevick of Elyria was crossing Tillotson from the 49th Street Bridge into the Mark’s parking lot in her 1996 Buick Regal and was struck by David Komadina of Lorain who was traveling north on Tillotson. Both drivers told Police they had a green light.

After the crash Kevick and other witnesses say that Komadina exited his car and began yelling at Kevick. The yelling and threats became so heated with Komadina calling Kevick a “fucking hillbilly bitch” and saying, “I’ll kick your ass”, Kevick got back in her car and locked her door. Witnesses say Komadina continued to yell and pound on the windows.

Officers took Komadina into custody and charged him with Menacing.

Komadina’s parents were called to the scene to take control of the dog that was in the car at the time of the crash. Until they arrived Officer Jim Rider of the Elyria Police Department attempted to comfort “Beaner” the chocolate Lab. Rider’s kindness to the pup was rewarded with a smooch from the k9.
