THREE INJURED IN ROLL OVER CRASH
New Russia Township – Three people were injured early Friday morning after a single car crash on Hamilton Road.
Trooper Lance Deshuk of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said the 2012 Nissan Altima was traveling south on Parsons when the driver failed to negotiate the curve that would then take the car east. The car took out a reflective arrow sign, went through a fence, rolled down a hill and then rolled a number of times before coming to rest near Route 20.
The driver of the car has been identified as 27 year old Maurice Newell of Elyria. The two passengers have been identified as 31 year old Melissa Stowers of Vermilion and 29 year old Keeon Green of Elyria.
Two of the three victims were transported by LifeCare Paramedics to Mercy Allen Hospital Emergency Room and later taken to Cleveland. The third victim was taken from the scene directly to Cleveland.
Deshuk said alcohol was a contributing factor.
