Youngstown police still investigating traffic fatal


YOUNGSTOWN — Police are still investigating, and not releasing much information, about a weekend hit/skip accident on the South Side that left one woman dead.

According to police, the 53-year-old woman was crossing the street along Glenwood Avenue near Cleveland Street at about 2 a.m. Sunday morning when she was struck by a car and killed.

Police believe the woman may have been leaving a nearby bar at the time of the accident.

Police have not made any arrest in the case, but do have the suspected vehicle and are expecting to speak with witnesses and a potential suspect later today.

The car's driver, according to police, will likely face charges for leaving the scene of an accident at the very least.
