AKRON, OH (WOIO) - The Akron Police Department is investigating a crash that occurred shortly after 2:06am Sunday morning near the intersection of Allyn Street and Irisdale Place where 21-year-old Amanda Rose Pappa was hit and killed by a car while standing outside.
Officers on scene administered first aid in the form of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), CPR and used their belts as tourniquet. Pappa later transported to a local hospital where she is listed in critical condition.
This, after officers responded to a large fight around 2 a.m. Sunday morning in the 200 block of Irisdale Place. After officers arrived, they tried to disperse the crowd when officers observed a 2008 Honda Civic, occupied by a 17-year-old male (driver) and a 15-year-old female (passenger), traveling towards the crowd near the intersection of Allyn Street and Irisdale Place. As the car approached Irisdale Place, the car struck a retaining wall, a cruiser and then a 21-year-old Amanda Rose Pappa.
The occupants of the Honda Civic were transported to area hospitals for treatment where their injuries do not appear to be life threatening.
The vehicle crash remains under investigation.
