Observant Secretary Helps Police Locate Hit-and-Run Driver

A secretary in the body shop of the Ganley Lincoln auto dealership may have helped police locate the hit-and-run driver of a 13-year-old Olmsted Falls, Ohio boy. The teen was walking down the road at approximately 7 p.m. on October 17 when he was struck. He was flown to an area medical center where he died the next day, his birthday.

The day after the accident, an elderly woman brought her vehicle to Ganley for body work. The secretary said she became suspicious when the woman wanted to pay for the repairs herself, did not want to involve her insurance company, and requested the repairs be done immediately. The 79-year-old owner of the vehicle said she discovered the damage to her car when she woke up, but did not want to involve the police. Employees at Ganley said the damages were similar to those when someone hits a deer. Recalling a hit-and-run accident the day before, the secretary looked at the woman’s vehicle more closely and noticed hair and blood on the windshield; her manager called the police.

Evidence from the accident scene matches the vehicle in question although tests on blood and hair samples need to be completed. Once these tests are completed, the woman may be arrested and questioned. Was she driving the vehicle? Was she distracted? There are many unanswered questions that may take a long time to resolve.

In cases like this, lawsuits are, typically, the way to compensate the victim and punish the perpetrator. Most likely, the parents of the innocent teen, in the wrong place at the wrong time, will contact a personal injury attorney to discuss their rights.
