Suspect Arrested In Fatal Cleveland Hit Skip

Written by

Cleveland Police Patrolman David Fahey was killed when he was hit along I-90 Westbound in Rocky River around 6 a.m. Tuesday morning. 

Officer Fahey was providing assistance to an earlier accident when a white Toyota Camry hit him. He was transported to an area hospital where he died. 

After an hours-long manhunt, police in Lorain County located the suspect vehicle outside a home on E. 31st St. in the 11 a.m. hour. Authorities surrounded the home and shortly after noon, a suspect was in custody. 

No suspect information, nor charges have been released at the time of the arrest. 

Cleveland Police were assisting after a van had run into the back of a fire truck along I-90 near the Warren Rd. exit. That is when the driver of the 2000 Camry hit Officer Fahey and drove off. The highway was shut down for hours between the Innerbelt and Detroit Rd.
