PARMA, Ohio (WOIO) -Parma police said they believe speed was a factor in a two-car accident Wednesday afternoon that seriously injured both drivers.
Parma police said just after 1 p.m. on Wednesday, a 19-year-old man was driving a Dodge Neon southbound on Hauserman Road and a 66-year-old woman driving a Chevrolet Astrovan was attempting to make a left hand turn from Deborah Drive onto Hauserman Road.
