A man and child remained in critical condition Monday evening after a single-vehicle rollover crash on the Ohio Turnpike that sent six people to the hospital.
The crash occurred at 6:55 a.m. in the eastbound lanes, one and a half miles west of the U.S. 250 exit. The Ohio State Highway Patrol is still investigating the cause of the crash.
Three people were airlifted and three were taken by ambulance to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo, according to the Ohio Highway Patrol’s Milan post.
Santana Parker, 22, of Euclid was driving a 1996 Ford Explorer east in the center lane when she lost control. The vehicle rolled over, landing on its roof, said Sgt. Tom Curran of the Milan post of the state patrol.
Also injured were Cleveland residents Ebony Sanford, 20, and Steven Elam, 21, who was trapped in the vehicle and freed by mechanical means, Curran said.
Two 3-year-old girls, Serenity Elam and Nevyah Anderson, had serious injuries, and Zai’ Shawn Boswell, 6 months, suffered a bump on the head.
As of Monday evening, Parker and Sanford had been released from the hospital. Steven Elam and Nevyah were in critical condition, and the other two were in fair condition.
Emergency personnel from Milan Township, Groton Township and North Central EMS assisted at the scene.
