TowNews Posted September 13, 2020 Share Posted September 13, 2020 Two men died in East Akron this weekend in separate traffic accidents. One involving a Tow Truck. (Article has been edited down to one story) A 60-year-old man was struck Saturday evening while standing beside his pickup truck, which had broken down on a ramp. Akron Police Lt. Michael Miller said the 60-year-old man had called a tow truck for assistance after his disabled 2008 Dodge Ram truck came to a stop on the shoulder of the downhill ramp from East Wilbeth Road to I-77 North. With the flatbed tow truck on scene just before 11 p.m., Miller said the “victim was standing alongside the driver’s side of vehicle when another northbound vehicle swiped the truck, hitting the victim.” The second vehicle fled the scene. The tow truck driver could not give a description. There’s no known surveillance footage of the crash, Miller said. Police have collected debris from the collision, which will be analyzed to determine the make and model of the hit-skip vehicle and possibly track down the driver.
