Bay Village Police report a close call for a group of kids who were scattered after a car swerved into the bike lane last week.
On 04/17/2017, at 09:45 PM, Bay Village received a call from a motorist who was following a Honda CRV east bound on Walker Road, approaching Bay Village. At one point, the Honda had swerved into the bike lane, forcing a group of kids to jump out of the way and into the grass.
The Honda was stopped by a Bay Village officer. When first contacting the female driver, the officer noted a tissue stuffed up her nose. She stated she was on her way to St. John Medical Center for a bloody nose, but her nose was not bleeding.
After failing the roadside sobriety tests, the 31-year old Avon Lake resident was arrested for OVI. She was processed at the station and since she refused to call anyone for a ride was held several hours before being released on personal bond.
