A woman suffered a head laceration and was briefly trapped inside her vehicle following a two-car crash May 10 near the intersection of Oberlin and Russia Roads.

Hannah Frame, 19, was taken by helicopter to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland after the Ford Focus she was a passenger in was T-boned by a Ford F-150 around 3:41 p.m.

Investigators suspect one of the two vehicles ran a stop sign, but haven’t determined which one, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The driver of both the Focus and F-150 were unharmed.

The jaws of life were needed to free Frame from the car. She remained conscious and was discharged from the hospital around 7 p.m., police said.

Oberlin firefighters responded to the crash.

“She was probably trapped in the car for about 10 minutes,” said chief Robert Hanmer. “Since it was a T-bone type of accident, the brunt of the impact took place right where she was sitting in the passenger seat. She was alert and oriented before being transported, but due to the nature of the accident, we though it’d be best to fly her.”
