Highway Patrol IDs teen hurt in morning crash

GRAFTON TWP. — A student on the way to school was LifeFlighted following an accident this morning in Grafton Township.

According to Sgt. R. Cross of the State Highway Patrol, Tyler Pasenow, 16, was westbound on Grafton-Eastern Road about 8 a.m. when the single-vehicle accident occurred.
