Van implicated in hit-skip crashes owned by former Austintown rehab clinic

Posted: Updated:
LIBERTY TWP, Ohio -

A van allegedly involved in this week's hit-and-run crashes in Liberty is owned by a now-closed Austintown drug rehab facility under investigation by the feds.

In addition, the alleged driver of that van lists the same Girard address as a home raided by federal agents during their investigation into that rehab facility.

According to a Liberty Township Police report, 37-year-old Corey Sheridan was driving the Chevy Express Van that left the scene after plowing into a Ford Taurus that had stopped for a light on Belmont Avenue Monday.

The report says the Express Van is owned by Braking Point Recovery of Austintown, which closed in October 2017 after federal agents searched the Meridian Road facility as part of a Medicaid investigation.

The van, which allegedly was involved in several other accidents in the same area, two of which were recorded on cell phone video, was recovered by police at the Marshall Road home where Sheridan lives.

It's the same home that was also searched by federal investigators early last year as part of the same Braking Point investigation.

Trumbull County records show the Marshall Road home is owned by Ryan Sheridan, who also owned Braking Point.

It is unknown if Ryan Sheridan and Corey Sheridan are related to one another.

There have been no charges filed in connection with the Braking Point investigation, but investigators have asked a federal judge to order Ryan Sheridan to forfeit vehicles seized during their search of the Girard home, as well as $2.9 million.

Ryan Sheridan is awaiting trial in Columbiana County on a fifteen-count indictment alleging that federal agents found illegal steroids and stimulants when they searched a Leetonia home that Sheridan also owns.

As for Corey Sheridan, he pleaded not guilty to charges including hit-and-run, failure to stop after an accident, driving under the influence, and operating a motor vehicle without due regard.

His next scheduled court appearance is January 16.
