A teen driver was hospitalized Wednesday after being ejected from a one-vehicle crash early that morning.

The accident involving Stephanie C. Brukowski, 19, of 1628 Butler Road, Wakeman, happened at 12:05 a.m. on U.S. 224 about a half-mile east of Greenwich. A LifeFlight helicopter flew her from the scene to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo with serious injuries. A Mercy spokeswoman said Brukowski was listed in fair condition as of early Wednesday afternoon.

Brukowski was eastbound on U.S. 224. Troopers with the state Highway Patrol said she went off the left side and hit a driveway embankment. Her 1999 Buick Century landed on the other side of the driveway and overturned.

The driver, who wasn't wearing her seatbelt, was ejected from the car, troopers said.

Charges are pending in the ongoing investigation.

Clark Bros. Garage towed the car from the scene with disabling damage. The Huron County Sheriff's Office assisted at the scene.

I hope he will be OK but we all need to wear our seat belts.

She probably fell asleep working 3 jobs to pay for health insurance and deadbeats to eat steak on New Years. Get well girl, lesson learned and be safe out there.

Glad she is , to add insult to injury the OSP will cite her for everything under the sun and make a few bucks this week. Poor kid.

To the writer of this article, you not only spelled my name wrong but made it sound like I was in serious trouble. For the record I had just worked a full shift, and decided to head home from school as I had the next few days off. According to officers they believe I fell asleep. No alcohol was involved. I was NOT a party girl in fact I drink very rarely if at all since I do not like the taste of alcohol. I got a failure to control and a seatbelt ticket. That's it. So for the author of this misshapen article and the jerk who commented, get your facts straight. Thank you.
