Amherst Township – A crash on Route 2 sent a man to the hospital with serious injuries Saturday afternoon.

A witness said the man was driving in the eastbound lane of Route 2 between Route 58 and Middle Ridge Road before the crash occurred. The witness said he watched as the car went off the road into the median and into the westbound lane. The car then went off the road again near the base of the Route 2 on ramp from Middle Ridge Road and went airborne into the wooded area. The car took out a number of trees before coming to rest against a tree.

Firefighters from Amherst had to extricate the victim from the vehicle before turning care over to Paramedics from LifeCare Ambulance. Initially officials were going to land a chopper at the scene but Metro gave too long of an ETA so the victim was taken by LifeCare directly to Amherst Hospital Emergency Room where he was later transferred to Cleveland.

Troopers from the Ohio State Patrol are investigating the cause of the crash.
