CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The 22-year-old killed in a hit-and-run crash on I-90 near Chester Avenue early Sunday was a football player for Case Western Reserve University.

Cooper Tulloch, of Boca Raton, played safety for three seasons with Case Western Reserve University’s football team, according to a university spokesperson. He graduated just a few months ago.

He died after he was struck by an unidentified vehicle about 3:30 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of I-90 near the Chester Avenue exit, according to an email from police.

Officers were called out due to several reports of a man lying in the road. Tulloch died at the scene.

What’s unclear is why Tulloch was on the interstate.

The driver fled the scene of the crash, but Cleveland police say they are investigating to find out who’s responsible.
