Man injured in roll over crash on Bell Avenue

Emil Whitis • Jun 4, 2012 at 10:27 AM

(UPDATED with video) A white Grand Am rolled over into a ditch north of Bell Avenue at about 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon, seriously injuring the driver.

Ryan Kaufman, who lives in the neighborhood and saw the crash, found the driver incapacitated and laying in water in the upside down vehicle.

Kaufman reached through the broken glass and held the man's head out of the water until police and fire crews arrived.

Responders attempted to call in a medical helicopter, but it couldn't respond due to bad weather. The man was instead taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center.

His name has not yet been released.
