Into the carport
A 29-year-old Salem man was injured Thursday when his vehicle crashed into a carport at a home on state Route 517 in Fairfield Township.
According to the highway patrol, Clint R. Eisnnicher was eastbound on Route 517, traveled left of center in his 2003 Dodge Caravan and continued off the left side of the road, striking several trees and a Chevrolet S10 parked in the carport at the home of Verna Cope, 44550 state Route 517.
The crash that occurred shortly after noon did not injure anyone in the attached house.
New Waterford firefighters responded to the crash and temporarily stabilized the carport so the car could be removed by Steve's Towing.
Trooper Eric Carroll is investigating the crash assisted by Sgt. Ron Cox.
Eisnnicher, who had non life-threatening injuries, was taken by Columbiana EMS to Salem Regional Medical Center. He was cited for failure to control and failure to reinstate his license. Morning Journal/Patti Schaeffer
