Below, the scant details so far from police, including a loose description of a vehicle that may have been involved — a possible white Toyota Camry with a partial license plate of GTD and damage to the front end of the car.

The accident occurred around 6 a.m. this morning, according to Cleveland.com, and the officer involved was diverting traffic after a previous accident that involved a van hitting a firetruck, the firetruck itself was blocking traffic from an even earlier accident. One other person died as a result of one of those accidents this morning, but it's unclear from news reports which one.

I-90 westbound remains closed between I-71 and Warren at this time.
