CLEVELAND - The Fox 8 I-Team has obtained video from a City of Cleveland security camera posted on the corner of the intersection where a hit-and-run driver nearly killed a woman. But the camera did not capture the incident.
It happened Tuesday morning at West 150th and Puritas. A driver hit Jeanne Stuckey as she walked to work. Witnesses told police a white Ford van turned right and hit the woman in a crosswalk.
With the camera there, the I-Team requested the video. We found the crosswalk just out of frame.
The victim’s daughter devastated.
“I’m really upset. I’m alternating between being angry, sad and wanting to fix the problem,” Tiffany Salay said.
The I-Team noticed the camera didn’t pick up most of two crosswalks.
The man in charge of the camera program says there was nothing unusual about how the camera was framed. Larry Jones says, “Typically we position our cameras there on the middle of the intersection so you see any traffic in the intersection.”
Oddly though, the I-Team also found that 3 days after the hit-and-run crash, accident investigators still had not seen the video in the Jeanne Stuckey case. City Hall argues it has a system in place to get city camera videos to police quickly. Yet it is not clear why detectives had not been given this video earlier.
If you have a tip leading to an arrest, c Crime Stoppers at 216-252-7463. Or give a tip to Cleveland Accident Investigators at 216-623-5295.
As of Friday evening, Jeanne Stuckey remained in intensive care.
