City employee suffers severe injuries in Ohio crash

A two-vehicle accident on Feb. 26 in Lorain critically injured a city utilities worker, and the collision occurred shortly before 11:00 a.m. in the 1800 block of 28 Street. The street was slick and covered with snow when the incident took place, and the driver who allegedly was responsible reportedly did not have a valid driver's license.

The Lorain Police Department Traffic Bureau investigated the crash and found that the city worker was entering or exiting a 2010 Chevy Silverado belonging to the city when a 2003 Ford Taurus headed toward the intersection of Pearl Avenue while traveling east on E. 28 Street. After passing the intersection, the 28-year-old male driver of the Ford, who is from Sheffield Village, lost control of his vehicle and hit the Chevy. The worker became pinned between the Chevy and the Ford, and the Chevy also slid forward after the initial crash and hit a parked Mercedes S550.

The 55-year-old city worker, who is from Lorain, was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center after suffering serious injuries, and the Ford driver suffered non-incapacitating injuries but declined to be taken to a hospital. It was reported that the driver appeared to be impaired by either alcohol or drugs when the collision took place.

Anyone who suffers serious injuries in a car crash may spend multiple days in a hospital and require time off from work while recovering. Fortunately, a victim can seek compensation from a driver whose negligence was responsible for the incident. In this case, any evidence collected by investigators could be used in a personal injury lawsuit to show fault.
