Motor vehicle accident

Five vehicles involved: Two people were reported injured in an Aug. 29 motor vehicle crash involving five vehicles at North Main Street, near Bermont Avenue.

According to the report, a witness said a 61-year-old Akron woman was traveling south on North Main Street when she struck a vehicle being driven by a 55-year-old Cuyahoga Falls woman, causing her to strike a vehicle being driven by a 31-year-old Munroe Falls woman before heading into oncoming traffic, where she struck a northbound vehicle being driven by a 75-year-old Cuyahoga Falls man. After the initial collision, the Akron woman continued south and also hit the Munroe Falls woman’s vehicle, forcing it to strike a 29-year-old Cuyahoga Falls man’s vehicle, which was also in the southbound lanes and stopped in traffic.

The Cuyahoga Falls woman and the Munroe Falls woman were both transported to Akron City Hospital for non-incapacitating injuries. The vehicles owned by the Akron woman, Cuyahoga Falls woman, and Munroe Falls woman were towed from the scene.

K-9 assist requested: The Munroe Falls Police Department was called to assist the Cuyahoga Falls Police Department with a K-9 vehicle search on Aug. 29 at 8:23 p.m. The responding officer was told the suspects told Cuyahoga Falls officers that they were heading to Sandusky from Canton, but they were heading south. Both the driver and passenger reportedly had visible signs of drug use. The Munroe Falls K-9 alerted officers to narcotics. The Munroe Falls officer found a bag with meth, a meth pipe and scales.

Man’s mother threatened: A Brimfield man came to the Munroe Falls fire department parking lot Sept. 1 at 6:04 p.m. and told police he received a phone call from a man who was calling from his mother’s phone number.
