Cleveland Police said a 50-year-old man, who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, is likely to blame in a wrong-way head-on crash that sent him and three others to the hospital on Saturday night.

That crash also shut down a portion of Cleveland's Memorial Shoreway on Saturday night.

Police spokeswoman Jennifer Ciaccia said 50-year-old Frazier Sims was driving a late model Toyota Corolla westbound in the eastbound lanes of Route 2 around 7:15 p.m. Saturday, when he came around a corner and collided head-on with a Ford Transit near West 45th Street.

Sims was transported to MetroHealth Medical Center in critical condition, Ciaccia said. 

The Ford Transit's 44-year-old female driver, as well as two female passengers, ages 17 and 68, were also transported to the hospital with serious injuries. Police said the driver of the van had no sign of impairment.

The Shoreway has since reopened.
