AVON – A young driver got a lesson from the school of hard knocks Friday evening as he and his dad were out for a drive on 15A near Bob Johnson Chevrolet.
According to first responders on scene, the driver was driving on a learner’s permit, and inexperience led to his losing control of the vehicle, running off the road, crossing a deep ditch and landing heavily at the curb of the Mobil gas station parking lot at about 6:30 p.m.
The original emergency call advised of the complaint of a possible head injury, but fortunately, aside from a bit of a limp from Dad, there were no injuries.
Firefighters with the East Avon Fire Department, as well as Avon Ambulance and Avon Rotary Lions Ambulance responded to the scene, assisted by Livingston County Sheriff’s Deputies.
