Police are still searching for the suspect who hit a man on a scooter and then drove off.

According to Cleveland Police, 54-year-old Maurice Cowan, of Shaker Heights, was traveling eastbound on a Kymco scooter in the 13000 block of Kinsman Road around 4 a.m. on Aug. 9. Police say an unknown vehicle driving recklessly in the area hit the scooter. Upon impact, Cowan flew off the scooter onto the road and suffered fatal injuries.

The driver of the vehicle fled the scene, heading eastbound on Kinsman.

Based on video evidence and witness statements, investigators believe the suspect vehicle is an early 2000s, four-door, gold or tan sedan. The vehicle may be a Buick Regal or Century and was operated by a black male in his 30s. The suspect vehicle would have sustained contact damage to the right side.

Anyone with information on the suspect or vehicle is urged to contact the Accident Investigation Unit at 216-623-5295
