Semi strikes, kills man


Police are still waiting to identify a man who was killed about midnight Tuesday after he was struck by a tractor-trailer on the Madison Avenue Expressway.

A spokesman for the department’s Accident Investigation Unit said the unit and the Mahoning County Coroner’s Office are awaiting the results of fingerprint results to find out the man’s identity.

The man was struck as the tractor-trailer was traveling north on the expressway by the Crescent Street exit ramp. No charges have been filed. An investigation is continuing.

Attack, theft reported


A township woman said three women attacked her and stole things from her apartment Tuesday.

At 1:28 p.m. Tuesday, she told police someone knocked on the door of her South Schenley Avenue apartment and covered the peephole. When she answered, a woman said she left something in the apartment. Then her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend appeared and began to attack her.

The victim had a swollen right eye, a lump on her head and a scratch on her back, according to a police report. She is nine months pregnant.

After the suspects left, she noticed her phone, a PlayStation and six games were missing.
