PARMA, OH (WOIO) -

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown was involved in a crash Friday after another driver ran a stop sign in Parma.

"Connie and I and my team are so grateful to the Parma Police, the paramedics, and doctors and nurses at Parma Medical Center for their professionalism and quality care," Brown said.

The crash occurred around 4 p.m.

A staff member was also with Brown at the time. Both were taken to University Hospitals Parma Medical Center and treated for minor injuries. Both were released Friday evening and are OK.

They were on their way home to Cleveland after working in Columbus. They had just picked up Brown's rescue dog, Franklin. Franklin was strapped in with a harness that protected him from being harmed in the crash.
