Four minors took a tumble in a Pantiac G6 mid-morning Monday on Rt. 2 near the Middle Ridge Road exit.

The car was traveling west when the driver lost control, went into the median, and rolled near mile marker 166, according to Ohio State Highway Partol trooper Josh Grimm.

Two boys and two girls were in the vehicle at the time of the crash, Grimm said. The passangers sustained minor injuries and all four were taken to University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center.

Amherst assistant fire chief Jim Wilhelm said his department disconnected the car battery and verified it wasn’t leaking any substances.

“They’re real lucky that it didn’t end up in the eastbound lane,” he said.

Elyria Township, Sheffield Township, and LifeCare Ambulance also had responders on the scene. Elyria Towing removed the car from the median.
