CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Police are searching for the driver of the suspect vehicle involved in a fatal car crash that occurred on East 124th Street at 2:41 a.m. on Saturday.

Police say an unknown man was driving a 2008 Dodge Charger well in excess of the posted 25 MPH speed limit southbound on East 124th Street approaching St. Clair Avenue when he struck 45-year-old Dion L. Liddell's car.

Liddell was reportedly driving a 2014 Nissan Versa Note east from the rear parking lot of 12335 St. Clair Avenue onto East 124th Street when the front of the Dodge Charger struck the left side of his car.

The force of the impact pushed Lindell's Nissan south approximately 115 feet before coming to a stop a few feet north of the St. Clair Avenue intersection, according to police.

Police say the suspect vehicle continued traveling south through St. Clair Avenue and struck a utility pole on the southwest corner of St. Clair Avenue and East 124th Street.

Lindell died as a result of the crash, reports say.

The suspect reportedly failed to remain on scene.

According to police, the identity of the suspect is unknown at this time.
