Police Refute Neighbor’s Claim That Crash Victim Was Robbed While Unconscious

CLEVELAND – Cleveland police are investigating a two car crash that sent both drivers to the hospital. Adding insult to injury, one of the unconscious victims was reportedly robbed before emergency crews arrived, a claim police later said was unfounded.

The crash between a red sedan and a minivan happened around 12:15 a.m. Monday.

When firefighters arrived, they found the driver of the red car unconscious. He was extricated from the vehicle and taken to MetroHealth Medical Center. His name and condition were not immediately available.

A neighbor told Fox 8 she watched as the driver of one of the cars was robbed as he was unconscious in the vehicle. Police, however, said that claim was unfounded.
