Anthony Clark, 53, of the 3800 block of Donair Drive, was taken by medical helicopter to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. He suffered injuries to his chest and spine, authorities said.

Sandusky police and firefighters rushed to West Monroe Street and Central Avenue at about 7 p.m. Thursday, after Clark’s truck rammed into a parked car and damaged a home in the 900 block of W. Monroe St.

Clark’s truck was headed west on Monroe Street at high speeds when it lost control, according to Alisha Cobb, who called police after witnessing the crash.

The truck struck an SUV parked on the south side of the street before crossing Central Avenue.

After it cleared the intersection, the truck drove off the north side of the road and slammed into a parked SUV in a driveway between two houses. The impact pushed the SUV into the porch of one home, causing significant damage.

Clark yelled as he was being loaded into an ambulance bound for Firelands Regional Medical Center. He was then flown to the Toledo hospital.

Officers said they suspect Clark was suffering from a medical issue when he crashed. A citation has not been issued.


Stop It

What happened with the one in Bellevue two days ago? Is this a pandemic? Should we worry? Is this the fault of the gov't shutdown and EBT and SNAP cards not working?


Was wondering the same thing, but a friend in Bellevue said the Gazette reported that the man who crashed into a house in Bellevue had a medical emergency. Either heart or low blood sugar. He was unconscious when they pulled him from the truck. He was taken to the hospital but she doesn't know any other details.

Stop It

That was kinna cynical and rhetorical since they never followed up on the Bellevue story, grandmasgirl. When someone says they will have news in tomorrows paper, it's expected. It wasn't even in the hard copy, which I receive.

@sam Start working at home with Google! Its by-far the best job Ive had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. Useful Reference
