Warren troopers investigating fatal hit-skip in Howland

Posted: Updated:
HOWLAND, Ohio - Investigators are trying to determine who struck and killed a woman who was found lying dead in a drainage ditch Monday morning.

The Warren Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol shutdown King Graves Road for almost three hours Monday morning, between Howland Wilson Road and Brittainy Oaks Trail NE.

The patrol reports Antoinette Ross, 55, of Howland, was struck sometime between 9 p.m. Sunday night and 8 a.m. Monday morning. It's not yet known how long her body was left in the ditch or what she was doing at the time she was hit.

Howland Township police handled a one-car crash in that same area Sunday night after 9 p.m. A search warrant was issued for the vehicle involved.

"We are conducting forensic testing on that vehicle now, so we can not conclusively say that, that vehicle was involved at this time, but we are reasonably sure it was," Lt. Brian Holt says. 

No suspects have been named as the patrol plans to question individuals who they believe may have more information about what happened.

Ross previously worked as a nurse at Howland Glen Elementary School and lived about one mile away from the crash site. Lt. Holt says she was killed instantly upon impact.
