(UPDATED with suspect's vehicle type) The Norwalk post of the state Highway Patrol is seeking the public's assistance in identifying a driver who fled the scene of a recent two-vehicle collision.

Troopers describe the driver as a man in his mid-40s who is about 6 feet tall. He has facial piercings and was wearing a Carhart jacket. The suspect was driving a black Dodge pickup truck.

Just before 3 p.m. Friday, the other driver, Morgan L. Shultz, 29, of Medina, was northbound on Olivesburg Greenwich Road in Greenfield Township.

The suspect, who was eastbound on Baseline Road, failed to stop for the stop sign and was hit by Shultz's vehicle, Trooper Matthew Gramlich said in his report. It's unclear how the man fled the scene.

The incident remains under investigation.

Anyone with information about the crash is encouraged to call the patrol at (419) 668-3711.
