A serious accident took place at 4:25 p.m. on Paul Huff Parkway at the entrance/exit to the Target Shopping Center.
It involved a Volkswagen Beetle and an SUV. The Volkswagen was struck in the driver's door. The 25-year-old female driver of the beetle suffered serious injuries. Multiple EMS units and the Cleveland Fire Department responded. The patient had to be extricated from the wreckage. Air medical was requested to land at the scene. A landing zone was set up at the corner of Paul Huff and Frontage Road. The female patient was flown by Air Evac to Erlanger Medical Center which is a level one trauma center. There was a male passenger who suffered cuts and abrasions and was transported locally to Sky Ridge. The SUV had a mother and three children. They were not injured.

Just before 7 p.m. another crash on Paul Huff at the interstate involved two cars and a motorcycle. The 52-year-old male driver of the motorcycle was not seriously injured and was transported to Sky Ridge in Cleveland.

Just minutes after 8 p.m. a two-vehicle accident was reported at Wildwood Ave. and 15th St. Initial reports indicated that one of the vehicles had rolled over. When EMS crews arrived, both vehicles were upright in the roadway and all occupants were clear. It was believed that there were several patients.
