CLEVELAND -- Police are investigating after six people were hurt in a crash on Interstate 71.

Just after midnight, police say two cars collided on I-71 south at the I-90 west split. One of the cars, a Mercury Grand Marquis, was carrying three adults and three children. All were taken to Metro to be treated for their injuries.

Police say their preliminary investigation reveals a Cadillac hit the Mercury forcing it into a cement divider. The driver of the Cadillac ran from the scene before police arrived.

Witnesses told police the Cadillac was weaving before the crash and it appeared the driver may have been texting while behind the wheel.
