Second deceased crash victim found a day later

NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio - Police investigating what they initially believed was a single-fatal car crash discovered a second body in the wreckage more than 16 hours after the accident.

The car crashed into a metal carport late Saturday. Police searched the scene again Sunday because one of the two survivors believed a fourth person may have been in the car, and the man's family had not heard from him, officer Anthony Lee said.

The body of Lee Ormston, 20, of Avon Lake, was found about 5 p.m. in the carport, but it was not easy to see, Lee said. Part of the carport had to be torn apart to reach the body.

Neil Erlenmeyer, 18, of Grafton, was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after the crash. Both men were ejected from the car, said Dana Parsons, chief deputy coroner in Lorain County.

A 19-year-old man and 17-year-old boy were injured.

The cause of the crash hadn't been determined.

North Ridgeville is about 20 miles west of Cleveland.
