STRONGSVILLE, Ohio– Police in Strongsville are asking for the public’s help in connection with an incident that reportedly happened Wednesday, March 13 around 4 p.m. on Interstate 71 near the Ohio Turnpike.

A driver, who is currently a substitute teacher in the Strongsville School District, said that a car pulled up next to hers, then accelerated to about ten feet ahead of her vehicle.

According to the woman, the passenger side window of the suspect’s car was then opened and an object was thrown out. It struck and shattered her windshield.

The car was described as a late model, dark blue, “low-rider” type vehicle with tinted windows and rust on the bottom of the passenger door panel.

Anyone who witnessed this incident or may have information related to the identity of the suspect(s) or vehicle, is asked to call Strongsville police at 440-580-3230.

Tracy Linscott with the Strongsville Education Association tells FOX 8’s Suzanne Stratford what happened to the substitute teacher is terrible. Linscott said teachers on strike are becoming targets, too.
