1 dead in late night crash in Cleveland
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland EMS confirmed a 57-year-old man was dead when they arrived to the scene of a crash at St. Clair Avenue and Woodworth Avenue on Sunday night.
The incident happened around 11 p.m.
At least two vehicles were involved.
A couple told 19 News they heard the crash from their home and pulled the man out of the vehicle.
“We were just at home, we heard a crash. My girlfriend looked outside and saw a car, so we put on our shoes, ran down here,” one of the witnesses, Ervin Gulley Jr., said.
“It was heartbreaking, to see somebody... just a lifeless soul, laying there. We pulled him out, we got him in the grass, elevated his head, we tried to see if he was breathing. We felt him breathing, but I guess it didn’t work out,” another witness, Angel Southern, said. “I don’t know... we just tried.”
The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner identified the victim as Richard Lavelle Underwood of Cleveland.
Police said the accident remains under investigation.
