Summit County Sheriff:

On January 15, 2019, at approximately 12:15 p.m., the Summit County Sheriff's
Communication Center received a number of 911 calls about a motor vehicle crash
on the southbound lanes of Interstate 77 in Coventry Township. Patrol Units were
dispatched to the scene and found that a 2002 Volkswagen Jetta had been traveling
south on Interstate Route 77, just south of State Route 224 and had been run off of
the road. The Jetta was driven by a 20 year old woman from Green. Her 6 month
old son was inside the vehicle secured in a car seat. Her car left the roadway,
entered into the median, went airborne, landed, and rolled over a number of times
before coming to rest in the northbound lanes of Interstate 77. The driver and her
child were treated on scene by Coventry Fire and subsequently transported to
Akron City Hospital and Akron Children's Hospital for further evaluation. It was
determined that the other vehicle involved had not stopped and was not on scene.
Witnesses described the second vehicle as a 2000 to 2005 Honda Civic, possibly a
four door, red in color.
Anyone with further information about this crash is asked to contact the Summit
County Sheriff's Patrol Division at 330-643-2181, attention Deputy Robert
