LORAIN, Ohio (AP) - In a story Oct. 20 about a teen killed by a car, The Associated Press, relying on information from the Lorain Police Department, incorrectly spelled the first name of the victim. His name is Jayvian Johnson not Jayvion Johnson.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Ohio police looking for motorist who fatally struck teen

Ohio police looking for motorist who struck and killed teenager, 17, walking along street

LORAIN, Ohio (AP) - Police are looking for a motorist who struck and killed a 17-year-old boy as he walked along a street in the northeast Ohio city of Lorain.

Jayvian Johnson of Lorain was hit Oct. 19 and died early the next day after being flown to a hospital in Toledo and then to a trauma center in Cleveland. Lorain police say Johnson was walking with his girlfriend in the street when he was struck and sent airborne into a street sign.

Police say the girlfriend wasn’t able to provide a description of the vehicle. Police are asking the public for help in identifying the vehicle and its driver.
