Driver Badly Hurt in One-Car Crash

Brook Park man flown to hospital


A Brook Park man was taken by Life Flight helicopter from the scene of a one-car accident on Fair Road Jan. 19.

A passenger in the car, also from Brook Park, suffered less-serious injuries and was taken to Southwest General Health Center.

A report said the crash took place about 7:10 p.m. when the vehicle failed to negotiate a curve on Fair Road and slammed into mailboxes and a tree.

Detective Lt. John Janowski said the driver apparently was trying to flee from Berea police, although a Berea officer said there was no pursuit.

The driver passed a Berea cruiser and sped up, Janowski said.

Traveling at a high rate of speed, the car went straight where Fair Road bends just east of Prospect Road, leaving the road and striking a number of objects before the major impact into a tree, he said.

The driver, who remained at MetroHealth Medical Center early this week, will face charges in the incident.

It does not pay to run from the police. Especially when they're not chasing you! ; )
