LIMA - A University of Northwestern Ohio student remained in critical condition Friday nearly a week after he was involved in a crash on his way to class.
Michael Barrett, 18, of Terre Haute, Ind., is at St. Rita’s Medical Center. He lost control of his car while driving north on South Eastown Road near the intersection of West Elm Street at 11:58 p.m. Monday. The university has classes around the clock.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol continues to investigate the crash. No citation has been issued, said Sgt. Heidi Marshall of the Lima Post of the state patrol.
A passenger in the car, Matthew L. Angove, 20, of Richmond, Va., was not seriously injured. Troopers said speed was a factor in the crash. The men were late for class when the crash happened and neither were wearing seat belts, troopers said.
