Cleveland woman killed in hit-skip on city’s East Side identified

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A woman killed in a hit-skip accident on Cleveland’s East Side was identified as Herlane Brown.

Officials said Brown, 55, was killed in the deadly hit-skip around midnight on Saturday.

Brown was hit at the Rapid Stop on E. 55th Street and Payne Avenue.

Brown’s brother-in-law says the person driving the car didn’t even stop to check on his sister-in-law.

“What heartless individual would do that?” said her brother-in-law who didn’t want to be identified by name.

He says he wanted to encourage anyone with information about her killer to come forward.

“She was a great individual, she was fun to be with,” he added. “She had no problems, everyone knew her.”

Her Brother-in-law says Brown was battling stage four breast cancer. Now, his family is demanding answers.

Police said they are still looking for a dark grey vehicle.

Brown was taken to University Hospitals, where she was pronounced dead on Sunday.
