TWINSBURG -- The Twinsburg police department is seeking the public's assistance to help solve a fatal hit-skip traffic accident that occurred at 10:26 p.m. Sept. 15 on Interstate 480, just east of state Route 91.

A vehicle, possibly a pick-up truck, pulling a trailer, was traveling east on I-480 when the trailer came loose from the vehicle and struck a car before crossing the median, ending up in the westbound lanes.

A 2004 Harley-Davidson motorcycle driven by Michael K. Hull, 48, of Ravenna, struck the trailer.

Hull was ejected off the motorcycle and landed in the westbound lanes, where he was struck by two other vehicles.

The vehicle pulling the trailer continued eastbound on I-480 without stopping. The trailer was stolen from a Twinsburg business several hours earlier.

Hull was flown by Medevac to Akron City Hospital with life-threatening injuries where he died Sept. 30.

The Twinsburg Police Department is requesting anyone who witnessed the accident or has information to please contact the Twinsburg PD at (330) 425-1234.
