Man Who Struck And Killed One, Injured Five Now In Custody

Willoughby Hills - Willoughby Hills police have arrested a man involved in a wrong-way fatal crash on May 12th. The crash occurred around 3:14 a.m. on the I-271 northbound bridge to I-90 westbound.

24-year-old Donnell Ferguson II was charged Saturday with reckless homicide.

Officers say Ferguson was charged shortly after he was released from a rehabilitation center in Lorain County. Police say due to his injuries, the jail was unable to house him.

He was released on a personal recognizance bond and is expected in court Wednesday.

The other vehicle involved in the crash, a Mazda SUV, was occupied by three women ages 56, 39 and 32 and two children, ages 9 and 11.

The front passenger, 32-year-old Skye Brown, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Before the crash, western Lake County police departments received reports of a dark colored sedan traveling the wrong way near State Route 2 and I-90.

Officers from multiple departments were trying to locate the vehicle when the crash was reported.
