CANTON, Ohio (WHBC) – Canton police are planning to step up patrols in an area of the city fraught with hit-skip accidents.

Police records reportedly indicate there have been six hit-skip crashes in the vicinity of the intersection of 9th Street and Prospect Avenue SW over the last five years.

Police are investigating.
