ELYRIA TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) -

The Elyria Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is currently investigating a serious one car accident in Elyria Township. 

The crash occurred at 7:20 p.m. on December 2, on Murray Ridge Road at the west junction with Griswold Road. 

There was one person inside the vehicle, a black 2011 Ford F-250 at the time of the crash and no other vehicles were involved. 

The driver has been identified as Stanley Langford, 46, of Murray Ridge Rd in Elyria.
