Saturday’s crash victims out of hospital

 

The driver in a crash around 5:45 p.m. Saturday on the Ohio Turnpike near state Route 58 is recovering.

Ronald Leach Jr., 58, of New London was treated and released from MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, a nursing supervisor said Sunday. Leach drove off the road just west of the Turnpike exit ramp to state Route 58 with his Kia Forte flipping several times before coming to rest in a ravine, police said.  They said a diabetic reaction may have caused Leach to crash.

A LaGrange man whom police said crashed into a garage by the intersection of Capel and Durkee roads around 4:50 a.m., is also recovering.

Ethan Cocke, 21, was treated and released from MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, a nursing supervisor said Sunday. Police said Cocke drove through a stop sign before the crash and is likely to be charged.
