One person is dead after being struck by a car while walking near the intersection of Robinson and Van Buren avenues.
An investigation has been launched and the Barberton Police Department is teaming with the Summit Metro Crash Unit; the Robinson Avenue Bridge was closed for a time while crews worked the scene. They are releasing no details nor any information on the victim other than the death.
A Facebook poster claiming to have witnessed the accident, which happened around 6:45 p.m. Nov. 8, said the victim was elderly, although she could not determine sex, and pushing a shopping cart full of groceries.
