State Troopers say they have two unnamed persons of interests in the investigation into a car that struck and killed a Beaver Township man along Market Street in Boardman early Wednesday.
Investigators from the Ohio State Highway Patrol told 21 News that they found a car in Boardman that they believe may have been the first vehicle to run over 33-year-old Joseph Brown as he walked along Market Street near Western Reserve Road at around 12:30 am.
Investigators say they have finished processing the car.
Furthermore, officials say they have determined that two people were in the car when it struck Brown. Both of those individuals are considered persons of interest at this point.
A second car struck Brown that morning. That driver stopped and waited for investigators to arrive. The first driver left the scene.
Troopers aren't revealing the make or model of the car suspected of hitting Brown initially. It has been taken to the Canfield Post of the patrol for further investigation. No charges had been filed as of Thursday afternoon.
