A West Side man was struck by two vehicles and killed Wednesday night, less than 10 minutes after he was released from the Franklin County Corrections Center.

Douglas W. Cook, 49, was walking in the southbound lane of Jackson Pike near Dyer Road around 9:35 p.m. when he was struck from behind by a 2004 Subaru Forester driven by Matthew Scheurell, 42, of Grove City.

Scheurell stopped at the scene. A second vehicle, described as a dark colored SUV, also struck Cook while he lay in the roadway. That vehicle did not stop.

Cook’s death is the second of a pedestrian involved in a crash in the last week. Abriel Sharp, 25, of the South Side, was killed Saturday she wandered onto southbound I-71 between Gemini Place and Ikea Way in the Polaris area around 8:25 a.m.

Sharp stepped into the middle of the right-most lane and was struck by a driver who was “unable to avoid collision,” according to a Columbus Police crash report.

Anyone with information about the dark colored SUV involved in Wednesday night’s crash is asked to call the Columbus Police Accident Investigation Unit at 614-645-0167.
