Elyria – A mother and daughter were both injured early Tuesday morning after crashing on Route 57, just north of Cleveland Street.
Police say 36 year old Kiesha Betton of Elyria was traveling south on Route 57 in a 2003 Bravada when Betton lost control and went off the roadway rolling the car before coming to a stop just north of Cleveland Street. Police say neither excessive speed nor alcohol played a part in the crash.
Assistant Chief Ron Brlas of the Elyria Fire Department said Police Officers had assisted Betton’s 11 year old daughter out of the vehicle before they arrived. “The mother had significant injuries so we got inside and assisted her out safely to prevent any additional injuries.”
LifeCare Paramedics treated and transported both Betton and her 11 year old daughter to Elyria Memorial Hospital. Although the daughter’s injuries were listed as minor her mother had to be transferred to a Cleveland hospital for further treatment.
