AMHERST, Ohio - A race car driver at the Lorain County Speedway admitted to a sheriff's investigator that he reversed into the car of a 15-year-old driver with the intent to disable her car.
The Lorain County Sheriff's Department began investigating after 15-year-old driver Macy Fox said a driver had backed into her car three times as it sat stalled on the track last Saturday. Fox's car was severely damaged, and the teenager went to the hospital with whiplash.
In the sheriff's department report released Thursday to NewsChannel5, the other driver said his intention was to disable Fox's car so that she could no longer race.
He told the officer that Fox's car did not have power steering which made it hard to control and that she had been hitting other cars during races. He went on to say that she refused his offer to help improve her car's performance.
The report has been sent to the prosecutor who will determine if charges of vehicular assault and criminal damaging should be filed.
