CARLISLE TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WJW) – Ohio State Highway Patrol Soldiers are searching for a driver involved in a fatal crash that took place on Grafton Road in the town of Carlisle early Saturday morning.
OSHP Sgt. Ray Santiago said Fred Jones Jr, 57, was hit and killed on his way home from work.
Jones’ sister, Debbie Faris, told FOX 8 I-Team that her brother didn’t drive and had recently started working at Nick’s Drive Thru, near his home.
“He was very excited to start the job,” Faris said. “I couldn’t believe whoever hit him didn’t even stop. We are devastated. ”
Soldiers said a homeowner called 911 around 1:40 a.m., saying she saw a man’s body by her mailbox.
“His shoes are on the street, his hat is on the street,” the homeowner told the 911 dispatcher.
The soldiers said it appeared Jones was killed a short distance from the store.
Anyone with information about the hit and run is asked to call the state patrol at 330-813-8019.
