Police Offer $7K Reward in Deadly Hit-and-Run
CLEVELAND — A cash reward of $7,000 is being offered in a hit-and-run accident that killed an elderly woman on the city’s west side last week, Cleveland police said.
Investigators say 81-year-old Maxine Lobins was struck by a dark-colored SUV on the morning of January 9, as she crossed Lorain Avenue, west of Rocky River Drive.
Lobins, a retired school teacher, walked with her walker the few blocks from her retirement home to a Kamm’s Corners Steak ‘n Shake, where she ate breakfast.
She was heading home when she was struck by the SUV while trying to cross at the crosswalk.
Lobins died a short time later at Fairview Hospital.
The driver never stopped and continued eastbound on Lorain Avenue.
The Cleveland Division of Police says the reward may be available to anyone who provides valuable information to the case.
