NORWALK, Ohio - An 18-year-old Huron County man was in critical condition late yesterday afternoon after he was thrown from a car that struck several trees and a utility pole before overturning about five miles southeast of Norwalk, according to the Ohio Highway Patrol's Norwalk post.
Michael Allgyre, of Collins, which is near Norwalk, was a front-seat passenger in the car. He was flown to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center.
The car was driven by Steven Maxey, 18, of Columbus, and was southbound on Greenwich Milan Town Line Road, which divides Bronson and Hartland townships, just north of Union Road.
The driver lost control of the car and veered off the left side of the road shortly before 6 p.m., according to the patrol.
Mr. Maxey was being treated in Fisher-Titus Medical Center in Norwalk last night, the patrol said.
