 A vehicle rolled over near the village this weekend, near a location where other crashes have happened this winter.

The Huron River Joint Fire District and Norwalk Fire Department responded to the crash, which happened about 10:15 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of U.S. 20 and Norwalk Street.

"It was right up there near the cemetery," Huron River Fire Chief Tom Beck said. "We've had two or three (crashes) up there this winter."

Beck said the female driver lost control, hit an embankment of snow and the vehicle rolled over.

"A passerby helped get her child out. It was a non-injury accident," the chief added. "You could hear her voice in the 9-1-1 call."

Huron River responded with about 13 firefighters in three trucks. The crew arrived at 10:16 a.m. and left 17 minutes later.

Norwalk firefighters were at the crash site about 20 minutes.

"(We) arrived on scene, checked in with the incident commander to make sure they didn't need anything and then returned to station," Capt. Brett Beers said in his report.

The Huron County Sheriff's Office and Monroeville Police Department also were at the crash site. No other information about the accident was available at press time.
