Conneaut police still investigating crash

CONNEAUT — Police in Conneaut are still investigating a late Saturday afternoon that injured two Erie, Pa., motorcyclists, Chief Charles Burlingham said Monday.

No charges have been filed, although Burlingham didn’t rule out the possibility at a later date.

Around 5:17 p.m. a motorcycle traveling east on East Main Road (Route 20) was struck by a minivan at the intersection of Furnace Road, Burlingham said.

The minivan, which had been traveling north on Furnace Road, pulled onto Route 20 and hit the motorcycle, he said.

The motorcycle driver, Henry Zawistoski, 62, and passenger Lisa Czejdo, 41, both of Erie, were injured, police said. Zawiskoski was treated at UH Conneaut Medical Center, while Czejdo was flown by helicopter to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland. She was listed in good condition late Monday afternoon, a hospital spokesman said.

Both were wearing helmets, which helped them survive the impact, Burlingham said.

The driver of the minivan, Halie Reydak, 17, of Conneaut, was not hurt, Burlingham said.
