Westwood hit and run caught on camera

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Cincinnati police are looking for a Ford F-150 pickup following a hit and run in Westwood Thursday night.

Police say an adult on a moped was hit by the pickup around 4:20 p.m. at the intersection of Kling and Harrison avenues.

Darik Klepper, 36, was driving his moped southbound on Harrison Avenue, police say, when he made a left turn and was hit by the pickup traveling northbound.

Police say the moped was dragged underneath the truck on Montana Avenue from Harrison Avenue to Westwood Northern Boulevard, then east to Baltimore Avenue.

The red, older model Ford pickup with a ladder rack and temporary tags fled the scene.

Klepper was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with life-threatening injuries and is listed as being in serious condition, according to police.

Impairment and excessive speed have yet to be determined as factors, police say.

Anyone witnessing the crash between the pickup and moped, or the truck dragging the moped, is asked to call the Cincinnati Police Department Traffic Section at (513) 352-2514.
