One woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash Friday on Whitehead Road.

Becca Maurer was driving a PT cruiser southbound near 17364 Whitehead Road when a Dodge Dart heading northbound turned in front of the vehicle, according to her husband, Shawn Maurer, who was also in the car.

Shawn said the impact pushed their vehicle into the ditch, where it almost struck a pole. The Maurers’ two children, ages 7 and 6 months, and their son’s friend, also 7, were in the vehicle. Shawn and the children were not injured.

Becca was extricated by Lagrange Township Fire Department, and transported by ambulance to EMH Elyria Medical Center.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
