On October 27th, a crash on Ohio-60 led to two people being sent to the hospital. The Tuesday crash happened at about 12:15 p.m. and occurred between Sperry Road and Ohio 113.
According to reports from the Erie County Sheriff's Officer, a Chevy Silverado was traveling southbound on Ohio-60 before swerving into oncoming traffic. After heading into oncoming traffic, the Silverado hit a 2014 Nissan Xterra. The Chevy then left the roadway and rolled multiple times.
The Silverado's driver, James Buhl, is a 56-year-old Ashland resident. He experienced serious injuries in the crash on Ohio-60. First responders sent him to Cleveland Metro Hospital via helicopter. Those in the Nissan Xterra were also affected; however, only the front seat passenger was injured.
The passenger, Michael Garcia, is a 28-year-old from Wakeman. Responders also sent him to the nearby Cleveland Hospital via helicopter for emergency treatment. Others involved in the crash were treated at the scene. It seems as though Buhl was the only one in the Silverado at the time of the crash. There were no reports of passengers in the Silverado experiencing any injuries.
Lana Born and Matthew Mair, both in the Nissan Xterra, experienced minor injuries. Lana Born is 51 years old and from Wakeman. Matthew Mair is 31 and from Mentor. Born and Mair received treatment from EMTs at the scene, and it was determined that they did not need immediate or emergency medical care. It's possible that injuries were so minor in this head-on collision and rollover because everyone was wearing a seatbelt.
State Troopers believe that alcohol and drugs may have played a substantial role in this crash. The collision is still open for investigation. The patrols on the scene included the Erie County Sheriffs, Ohio State Troopers, and local EMS and fire services.
