A two-vehicle crash in Brooklyn leaves one person killed and one injured.

The crash occurred on Memphis Avenue east of Tiedeman Road in Cuyahoga County at approximately 4:34 p.m. last night.

The on-scene investigation revealed the crash involved a 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser and a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck. The driver of the Chrysler, 33-year-old Kristen Combs of Olmsted Township, was having a verbal confrontation with an unknown pedestrian outside her vehicle. She pulled northbound from a private drive into the path of the Silverado truck. The driver of the truck struck the pedestrian and the PT cruiser.
