DANBURY TWP.

Police say a 40-year-old Danbury Township man was struck and killed early Sunday by a vehicle driven by his ex-girlfriend.

Edward Johnson Jr. was struck on Lake Pine Drive in the Island View Manor Apartment complex in Danbury Township. Danbury police Chief Michael Meisler said Johnson's 21-year-old ex-girlfriend fled the scene after striking Johnson with her car.

The woman turned herself in 12 hours later at the Oberlin Police Department in Lorain County, though charges are pending based on the outcome of the investigation. She hasn't been arrested yet, Meisler added.

"That's what we're looking at," Meisler said. "Whether it was intentional or an accident."
