Wadsworth police seek information on hit-and-run accident

Wadsworth police on Friday said they are continuing to investigate a hit-and-run accident involving a highway worker at the Interstate 76 exit ramp to state Route 94.

The construction worker was hit while repainting lines on the exit ramp Wednesday morning and was transported to an Akron hospital, police said.

The worker’s status was not available Friday.

Police believe the vehicle involved was a blue Chevrolet or GMC truck, model years 2007 to 2009, with ladder racks on the side. The passenger-side mirror was torn off as a result of the impact.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Wadsworth Police Department at (330) 334-1511.
