Pedestrian killed in hit-and-run in Colerain Twp.

COLERAIN TWP., Ohio (FOX19) - A pedestrian died in a hit-skip accident on Colerain Avenue Sunday night, Colerain Township police said.

Officers responded to to the 7900 block of Colerain Avenue in front of Arby’s about 9:45 p.m. Sunday.

The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene, which the driver fled, said police spokesman Jim Love.

Love said the police department is aware of people posting video of the incident on Facebook and are asking anyone with video to send it to Colerain police.

“We’ve seen some of the videos and we want to go back and analyze them, try to look for clues,” he said. “We haven’t seen them all. So, we figured the best thing to do is just ask. If you’ve got a video, it may or may not contribute, but we won’t know until we look at it.”

The fleeing vehicle is described as a dark-colored sedan or coupe.

Police did not have information on the make or model.

Colerain Avenue was shut down overnight while police investigated. It reopened shortly after 4 a.m. Monday.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Colerain Township police: 513-385-7504.
