SOUTH EUCLID, OH (WOIO) - The South Euclid Police Department is currently investigating a crash involving a motor vehicle that seriously injured a teenager earlier this month and they are asking the public for any information in the arrest and prosecution of the suspect.
It happened February 11, 2015 between 7:05 AM – 7:20 AM in the area of 4129 Harwood.
14-year-old Jeida Mills suffered serious injuries to her head and back. She was on her way to school when she was hit.
