A  driver crashed his Ford Mustang into a median near a bus stop on Euclid Avenue after he was nearly robbed of his vehicle early Thursday morning.

The crash happened shortly after 5:30 a.m. after a silver Mustang slammed into a median near an RTA bus stop on Euclid Avenue.

The driver of the vehicle, a 42-year-old man from Macedonia, told police at the hospital that he was stopped at the intersection of East 30th Street and Euclid Avenue when he was approached by a man trying to rob him of his vehicle, a police reported stated.

The 42-year-old driver accelerated and then crashed into the median on Euclid Avenue. He was taken to University Hospital Cleveland Medical Center for treatment.

The concrete barriers prevented the car from hitting the bus shelter.
