Minor injuries for Ohio's Sherrod Brown after Parma car crash

Senator Sherrod Brown is okay after a crash in Parma.

PARMA, OHIO - U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and a staff member were treated for minor injuries after a driver ran a stop sign and struck the senator's vehicle.

The accident happened Thursday in Parma as the staff member was driving Brown's 2016 Jeep. Brown, a Democrat in his second term, was in the passenger seat.

Brown's office said air bags in the Jeep deployed and he and his staffer were treated at a Parma hospital for minor injuries and released.

The office said the senator's dog, Franklin, was in a safety harness in the vehicle and uninjured.

Brown credited the Jeep for minimizing the crash, noting it was made with American steel by union workers in Toledo.
