COVENTRY TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) - The Summit County Sheriff’s Office is trying to track down the driver accused of fleeing the scene of an accident in Coventry Township.

Just after noon on Jan. 15, numerous calls were made to Summit County 911 to report the crash on the southbound side of I-77 near State Route 224.
