Now police say that after some investigation it appears the truck’s steering wheel blew out and the driver lost control, going off the highway through the wall, coming to a grass-filled stop near Burton Avenue.
Bratenahl police said an ambulance crew rolling by the area saw the crash and stopped to take care of the driver. Once Cleveland EMS arrived on scene, the driver was reportedly taken to University Hospitals. Police said the driver’s injuries were not life threatening.
The right lane was blocked on I-90 west beyond Eddy Road to MLK Boulevard following the crash taking place at 11:30 a.m.
No other injuries were reported in the incident.
