Man crashes into Sandusky State Patrol building

The suspected drunk driver lost control in front of the patrol post


SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) – A suspected drunk driver picked the wrong place to crash his car Tuesday night.

The man was seriously injured after police say he slammed into an Ohio State Highway Patrol post building.

The crash happened just after 9 p.m. on Tuesday on the grounds of the Sandusky post. Police say a Ford Fusion was traveling at a high rate of speed when it traveled off the roadway, overcorrected and went onto the lawn of the patrol post.

Investigators say the car hit a large concrete sign and crashed into the front of the highway patrol building. The car’s 24-year-old driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected.

The Castalia man was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. Investigators say he doesn’t have a valid license.

Police say alcohol and speed likely contributed to the crash.
