A Norwalk couple was injured Friday after their motorcycle struck two cars on Milan Road.
Samuel Hay, 56 and his wife, Marlyn Hay, 65, were both taken by medical helicopter to a Cleveland hospital following the crash. Authorities at the scene said their injuries did not appear life-threatening.
Samuel was driving a Harley Davidson north on Milan Road, with his wife as a passenger, when a Dodge Magnum pulled out from the Outback Steakhouse parking lot, directly into their path, Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. Eric Short said.
The motorcycle slammed into the Magnum’s front end and then ricocheted across the road. It struck a passing Mazda Protege before coming to rest against a curb, Short said.
Samuel and Marlyn were both ejected from the motorcycle.
Luis Hernandez, 31, of Sandusky, was the driver of the Magnum. He was not injured, and he was cited for failure to yield the right-of-way from a private drive, Short said.
David Kim is a Sandusky doctor who was driving the Protege. He and a nurse passing by at the time exited their vehicles and attempted to help both victims before ambulances arrived, according to witnesses.
Erie County deputies, Highway Patrol troopers and Perkins police and firefighters all responded to the scene. Officers blocked off U.S. 250 for about 45 minutes as they cleared debris from the road.
