CLEVELAND-- A woman is doing all she can to help solve the mystery of a hit-and-run that left her mother fighting for her life. And the FOX 8 I TEAM is exposing hazards at that intersection.
Jeanne Stuckey nearly died after getting hit and dragged Tuesday morning near west 150 and Puritas in Cleveland.
Stuckey suffered multiple injuries and ended up in intensive care.
Her daughter, Tiffany Salay, is now hanging posters to try to generate tips. Cleveland accident investigators are also looking for clues.
In the meantime, the I TEAM found buttons for walk signals stuck or frozen at that intersection. A sign to tell pedestrians walk or don’t walk also wasn’t functioning when we checked.
It’s even unclear if the accident was captured on a city surveillance camera there. No flashing light could be seen on the camera, and police were waiting to hear if the camera recorded anything.
The accident happened only about 1500 feet from another hit-and-run that nearly killed a child. That happened in November outside RG Jones School.
If you know anything about either case, call Crime Stoppers at 216-252-7463. You could get a reward.
You could also call the Cleveland Accident Investigation Unit at 216-623-5295.
Salay spoke to FOX 8 with a message for the driver in her mother’s case. “Turn yourself in. Please do the right thing.” She added, “I’m sickened and disgusted that someone would hit her and leave her hurt the way they did.”
