At 7:53 a.m. Jan. 24, Maxine Lobins was walking with a walker in the street -- on the side of the roadway -- at 17407 Lorain Avenue and attempted to cross in the crosswalk and was struck by a black SUV that was heading eastbound on Lorain Avenue.

After hitting Lobins, the driver of the black SUV did not stop and continued eastbound on Lorain. Lobins was taken to Fairview Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

As a result of investigative leads, interviews and with the assistance of the Fairview Park Police Department, Accident Investigation Unit Detectives were able to identify the suspect vehicle as a black 2013 GMC Arcadia SUV and later identify the driver.

Cleveland police thank the Fairview Park Police Department and the community and the businesses on Lorain Avenue for their help in solving this incident.
