Hit and run driver hits homeless person sleeping under overpass
CINCINNATI (Perry Schiable) -- A suspected hit and run driver is in jail and the man he's accused of hitting is in the hospital Friday morning.
The driver lost control on northbound I-471 at Sixth Street. His car went over and embankment and hit an overpass where people where sleeping underneath. One of those people was hit by the car. The driver took off even though someone tried to tackle him and hold him for police.
Police caught up with a suspect a short time later in Mt. Auburn at Reading and Elsinore. Police have not released his name.
The person hit by the car was taken to UC Medical Center. We don't know his condition but we're told he's expected to survive.
