In news today…

On Monday January 18, at 11:17AM, officers responded to a motor vehicle crash in the area of 1525 Spring Place Road. A white Ford F350 pulling a utility trailer loaded with excavation equipment was heading eastbound, driven by Matthew Womac. A gold Buick LeSabre was heading westbound, driven by Dawn Schoate. Preliminary investigation appears to show the Ford was unable to stop due to traffic stopping to turn left to enter Spring Place Apartments. The Ford veered left to avoid a rear end collision. Upon doing so, the Ford struck the Buick head on, pushing it into a ditch on the westbound side. Due to the crash, Dawn Schoate did not survive her injuries, passing away at the scene. The Cleveland Fire Department had to extricate her from the vehicle and was then transported to the Medical Examiners office. Matthew Womac did not appear to have any injuries. The investigation is ongoing.
