“An increase in fatal crashes for Medina County is a very unfortunate thing.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, as well as their families and friends.  An increase in these numbers does not dampen the resolve of those law enforcement professional who do their best to maintain safety for the public through speed reduction, occupant restraint efforts and arresting impaired drivers.  We hope 2015 brings a safer year on the streets and roadways and encourage everyone to drive safely, wear their safety belt and don’t let family or friends drink and drive.” said Chief Carl Deforest of the Brunswick Division of Police.

“In 2014, Medina County experienced a significant increase in fatal crashes as compared to last year.  In 2013, there were only two fatal crashes with two people losing their life.  In 2014, there were a total of 14 crashes resulting in 15 deaths.  The Ohio State Patrol along with our law enforcement partners are committed to reducing fatal crashes in 2015.  Motorist can do their part by always buckling up and not driving while impaired” said Lieutenant Mark A. Neff Post Commander of the Medina Highway Patrol Post.

“The Medina County OVI Task Force encourages all citizens to be responsible and make plans ahead of time that will prevent them from getting behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking.  In 2015 our partner agencies on the task force will be working together to conduct sobriety checkpoints and aggressive saturation patrols to take impaired motorists of off our streets.” said Lt. Brian Ohlin of the Brunswick Division of Police and Commander of the Medina County OVI Task Force.

2015 County Traffic Fatalities Update







As of March 5, 2015 at 10:16 am, Medina County has had one fatal crash with one person killed.


“It’s imperative that motorists consider road conditions, speed and their own condition and abilities when driving. If any of these factors are less than desirable, the chances for a crash increase and the results can be devastating. Think of your safety and the safety of others before driving and be safe.” said Chief Carl Deforest of the Brunswick Division of Police.

“During this time of the year when roadways can change conditions very fast, it is imperative that each driver use their seat belt. Seat belts have saved many lives in our county, I encourage every driver and passenger to buckle Up.” said Lt. Brian Ohlin of the Brunswick Division of Police and Commander of the Medina County OVI Task Force.

“Medina County has recorded only one fatal crash so far in 2015. We would encourage everyone to do their part in helping us make 2015 the safest year in history. Taking the time to buckle up and driving responsibly will help us accomplish this. The Ohio State Patrol and our law enforcement partners are committed to making 2015 one of the safest years ever.” said Lieutenant Mark A. Neff Post Commander of the Medina Highway Patrol Post.

The “Safe Communities” program was developed through the Ohio Department of Public Safety to establish and/or expand community partnerships to create safer, healthier communities throughout Ohio.
