An unidentified man was critically injured in a car crash at state Route 57 and Midway Boulevard in Elyria about 7:20 p.m. Monday.
The man was driving south on Route 57 and failed to negotiate a curve onto Midway near the Lowe’s hardware store, fire Capt. Kevin Szabo said.
The Kia sedan the man was driving struck a utility pole.
A report was unavailable Monday night, but Szabo said the man was thrown about 15 feet from the Kia and was lying on his back unconscious when firefighters arrived.
The 30-year-old man was hospitalized at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, said Herb de la Porte, Lifecare Ambulance vice president.
