Teen not seriously hurt in North Ridgeville crash

An 18-year-old man was not seriously injured in a rollover accident just before 3 p.m. Tuesday in the 37500 block of Center Ridge Road in North Ridgeville.

The crash sent the man’s vehicle off the road and about 50 yards into the treeline, according to a news release by Lt. Rick Knowlton of the North Ridgeville Fire Department.

The gray Ford Focus the man was driving was found on its side against a tree in front of Lake Ridge Academy, at 37501 Center Ridge Road, Knowlton wrote.

The man was trapped in the back seat and the car had moderate front end damage. The man, whom authorities didn’t identify, was flown by helicopter to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.
