STREETSBORO -- A rollover crash at 10 a.m. Wednesday claimed the life of the driver, while a woman passenger and a child were slightly injured.
Ohio Highway Patrol troopers say the crash happened on the Ohio Turnpike westbound near Exit 187 after a vehicle ran off the road and rolled over in the median, landing on its roof and trapping the driver and two passengers.
Assistance was requested from the Aurora, Twinsburg, Hudson and Mantua-Shalersville fire deopartments and EMS to help pry the vehicle apart and get the victims out of the vehicle.
The five-year-old boy was found hanging upside down inside the car, still strapped securely into his car seat. He had scrapes and cuts but was generally in good condition when he was taken to Akron Children's Hospital by Aurora EMS.
The passenger, a 36-year-old Chicago woman, only had cuts and bruises and was taken by Hudson EMS to Akron Children's to be with her son.
The driver, 50, also from Chicago, suffered major injuries. Before he could be pried from the car, EMS determined that he had suffered a heart attack and had died.
The Portage County Cororner's office will determine his cause of death.
