A fatal one-car accident on the I-90 Hilliard Boulevard ramp is under investigation by the Ohio State Highway Patrol. The crash took place on Dec. 22 at about 10 p.m., killing Brent W. Sheets of Cleveland.
Sheets was exiting the freeway from the westbound lanes to Hilliard in a 2005 Chevy Cavalier when he drove off of the right side of the roadway and struck a guardrail.
The vehicle then crossed both lanes of the ramp, driving into a bridge wall, overturning onto its side. Sheets, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was partially ejected out of the passenger side front window. He was pronounced dead at the scene by county medical examiners.
The cause of Sheets’ driving off of both sides of the ramp is under investigation. The Hilliard ramp was closed for about three and a half hours during investigation of the scene.
