CLEVELAND - The death of a 16-year-old Cleveland girl dragged by a car has been ruled an accident.
The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office said Rosaura Oquendo was killed because of blunt impacts to the head, trunk and extremities with skeletal, visceral, vascular and soft tissue injuries.
They called it an accidental traffic death.
The 16-year-old died Feb. 5 after being dragged by a Jeep down West 81st Street, according to Cleveland police. They said she had an argument with the Jeep's driver, a 16-year-old, who witnesses said was her boyfriend.
Oquendo was killed just three days shy of her 17th birthday.
