N. Ridgeville man hospitalized after crash

LIVERPOOL TWP. — A North Ridgeville man sustained minor injuries in a one-vehicle rollover crash this morning on Grafton and Erhart roads.

Dustin Siska, 24, was traveling west in a 1998 Ford Ranger on Grafton Road when he veered off the right side of the road, overcorrected and went off the left side striking a utility pole at 7:26 a.m. today, according to Trooper Harley Steppenbacker, of the Ohio Highway Patrol’s Elyria post.

“It looks like the truck hit the pole sideways, spun around and came to rest upright,” the trooper said.

Siska was transported to Medina Hospital with minor injuries. He should be released this afternoon. Steppenbacker said. Siska was conscious and had cuts on his forehead.

There were no other occupants in the pickup truck, Steppenbacker said. Siksa was wearing a seatbelt.
