This vehicle driven by Sam Scafide, 75, St. Clair Avenue, East Liverpool, reportedly went out of control while westbound on Fredericktown Road Wednesday afternoon. Scafide drove off the right side into a ditch, striking an embankment then back into the ditch before flipping onto its roof and sliding into the middle of the road, according to St. Clair Township police. He was transported to East Liverpool City Hospital by North Star Critical Care and his vehicle was towed by Calcutta Towing. Calcutta Fire Department was on the scene cleaning up fluids spilled from Scafide's car that made the winding, steep roadway slippery.
