BRATENAHL, Ohio– Police in Bratenahl have released a sketch of the suspect wanted in a hit-and-run accident that left a woman seriously injured.

In December, police said, Gwendolyn Young’s vehicle was hit by a light-colored, full-sized pickup truck as she exited I-90 westbound at Eddy Road.

Both drivers stopped and got out of the vehicle; then an argument began.

When the driver of the truck got back into his vehicle to drive away, investigators said Young either got tangled or held onto the truck and was dragged a few hundred feet to the I-90 eastbound ramp from Eddy Road.

Bratenahl Lieutenant Charles Lobello said, “He stopped his truck again, got out, physically assaulted her, punching her about the face a couple times. After she fell post assault, he got back in his vehicle, drove away. In the process of driving away, he, in fact, drove over her.”

Now, police have released the sketch– hoping the public will recognize the suspect.

Anyone with any information is urged to call the Bratenahl Police Department at 216-681-1234. A reward is being offered.
