UPDATED: Man critically injured in crash on Route 2

AMHERST TWP. – The driver of a car that crashed around 3 a.m. Sunday on state Route 2 and Oberlin Road east of state Route 58 was critically injured.

Ledonrick Pentorn, 24, of Sandusky, was in critical condition at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland on Sunday evening. A driver said Pentorn passed her at a high rate of speed before veering right and then veering left, according to Trooper Joe Glascox of the Ohio Highway Patrol’s Elyria post.

Pentorn drove down a median, striking a drainage culvert and a concrete barrier. Pentorn was conscious and smelled of alcohol when he was extricated from his car by firefighters, Glascox said. Glascox said police will seek a subpoena for a blood test given to Pentorn to determine whether he was driving drunk.
