Sutton Jogger Killed In Hit-And-Run


THAT STARTED IN 1873. THE SHORTEST, JUST SIX MONTHS BACK IN 1980. ALSO TONIGHT, SUTTEN POLICE INVESTIGATE A DEADLY HIT AND RUN. A MAN TELLS US HIS WIFE FOUND THE VICTIM DEAD ON THEIR FRONT LAWN. THE MAN WAS HIT ON SINGLE TERRY AVENUE. A BUSY ROAD IN SUTTEN. TONIGHT POLICE ARE TRYING TO TRACK DOWN THE DRIVER. ANARIDIS RODRIGUEZ IS LIVE IN SUTTEN WITH MORE ON THE CASE TONIGHT, ANARIDIS? DAVID AND LISA, AS YOU MENTIONED, THIS IS A VERY BUSY ROAD. THAT’S A POPULAR STRETCH FOR DRIVERS TRYING TO GET TO NEIGHBORING TOWNS. AND WHOEVER HIT THIS GENTLEMAN WAS FLYING. WAS ABSOLUTELY FLYING. BECAUSE HE WAS HIT BY THAT TELEPHONE POLE OVER THERE WITH THE FLAG ON IT. AND HE LANDED RIGHT AT THE BASE OF THAT TREE. THAT TREE STANDS HERE ON THE FRONT LAWN OF HIS SINGLE TERRY AVENUE HOME. HE WAS IN HIS ROOM SLEEPING WHEN HIS WIFE CALLED FOR HELP. AS SHE WAS COMING DOWN THE STAIRS SHE NOTICED THE MAN ON THE LAWN. WOKE ME UP. I CAME DOWN. SHE CALLED 911. I CHECKED HIS PULSE AND HE WAS GONE. THE VICTIM WAS A JOGGER. AERIAL FOOTAGE SHOWING PIECES OF CLOTHING SCATTERED ALONG THE STRETCH. SUTTEN POLICE GOT THE CALL MINUTES AFTER 8:00 THIS MORNING. INVESTIGATORS SAY THE MIDDLE- AGED MAN WAS PRONOUNCED DEAD ON THE SCENE. AND THAT THE VEHICLE THAT HIT HIM NEVER STOPPED. AT THIS POINT, WE DON’T HAVE AN IDEA OF THE MAKE OR MODEL OR BODY STYLE BUT WE’RE WORKING ON THAT AS WE SPEAK. THAT’S SOMEONE’S FAMILY MEMBER. AND IT’S DISGUSTING THAT SOMEONE DID THIS AND JUST TOOK OFF. AND DIDN’T EVEN STOP. AND IT COULD HAVE MADE THE DIFFERENCE OF LIFE AND DEATH. THOSE WHO LIVE ALONG THE STATE ROAD SAY IT’S BECOME A POPULAR CUT THROUGH TO GET TO MILL BERRY. AND THAT DRIVERS SPEED OFTEN. SEE HOW FAST THAT CAR IS GOING WITH YOU PEOPLE HERE. THAT CAR SHOULD HAVE SLOWED DOWN. STATE POLICE AND THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE IN WOOSTER COUNTY ARE ASSISTING SUTTEN POLICE IN THIS INVESTIGATION. THEY’RE NOW ASKING HOMEOWNERS WHO LIVE IN THE AREA WHO MAY HAVE CAMERAS TO SHARE THAT SURVEILLANCE.
