MEDINA — A Medina woman lost control of her car and crashed into the High Voltage Indoor Karting building early Thursday morning, police said.
The 34-year-old woman was traveling north on Medina Street when she lost control of her 2009 Chevrolet Malibu, bounced over the curb, hit a dumpster and crashed into the side of High Voltage Indoor Karting, 333 Foundry St., at about 7 a.m., police Sgt. Scott Marcum said.
The crash knocked down bricks on top of the woman’s car, he said, noting there was a light coating of snow on the road.
“The fire department had to move (bricks) to get her out,” Marcum said. “The building collapsed around her vehicle. The Jaws of Life wasn’t used.”
The woman was flow to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland from nearby Ray Mellert Park, he said.
Steve Madden, general manager at High Voltage, said no one was inside the building when the crash occurred.
He said the building was being shored up Thursday afternoon but his main concern was how the woman was doing.
“I’d love to find out if the lady involved is OK,” Madden said.
Marcum said the driver suffered a head injury and is expected to recover. He said police weren’t releasing her name Thursday afternoon because “We’re still investigating.”
The sergeant said the woman might have had a “medical issue.” No charges had been filed Thursday, Marcum said.
The Life Support Team also responded to the crash.
