Monroe teen severely hurt in crash

ERIE, Mich. - A Monroe teen was in critical condition after a single-car crash early yesterday in Monroe County's LaSalle Township, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said.

James L. Goins, 18, was airlifted to Toledo Hospital following the 4:45 a.m. crash on South Telegraph Road near East Rauch Road in LaSalle Township, about 10 miles north of Toledo.

Mr. Goins, who authorities said was alone in the car, was southbound on South Telegraph when he went off the right side of the roadway and onto a gravel shoulder. He over-corrected, veered back across the road, and went off the left shoulder, where the car overturned and came to rest against a tree, sheriff's deputies said.

Mr. Goins was wearing a seat belt, deputies said.
