A 17-year-old girl has been charged in connection with an 81-year-old nun who was struck and killed in a hit-and-run crash at Kamm's Corners in Cleveland earlier this year.
CLEVELAND - A woman trying to cross the street using a walker was killed in a hit-skip crash in Cleveland Wednesday morning.
Cleveland police said they responded to the 17400 block of Lorain Avenue at about 7:53 a.m. for a pedestrian struck.
At the scene, officers found an unresponsive woman lying in the road.
Officers said their preliminary investigation shows the 81-year-old victim using a walker was walking in the street and was hit by a black van while attempting to cross the street.
After hitting the woman, the driver of the van did not stop and continued eastbound on Lorain Avenue.
The victim, Maxine Lobins, was taken to Fairview Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office will determine the official cause of death.
The family of an elderly woman who was fatally struck by a SUV earlier this year said they feel no closure despite news of a break in the case.
Cleveland police have identified the 16-year-old female driver who they say hit and killed an 80-year-old woman last month on Lorain Avenue and fled the scene.
The reward is now up to $7,000 for information leading to the arrest of the driver who hit and killed an 81-year-old nun.
