Deputies are looking for Nicholas Crawford, in connection with a Sharon Township crash Thursday that sent a woman and three kids to the hospital, and left cash flying around the scene.

The Cuyahoga Falls man is facing a felonious assault charge.

Investigators say he rammed his car into Shaquita Harris' car a couple of times, first on Wellingshire Boulevard, then again in the area of Flint Road and Park Road in Sharon Township. After the second hit, Harris lost control, sending her car crashing into a building. Crawford's car also crashed and rolled over.

There were four passengers in Harris' car, including three children. Investigators say the adult passenger, Sarah Washington, was severely injured, suffering a broken leg, broken pelvis, and several broken ribs. She needed multiple surgeries on her pelvis and a collapsed lung.

The children in the car were not seriously injured.

Authorities at the scene said there was about $15,000 in cash scattered around the road after the crash, but investigators won't reveal any information about where it may have come from.

Investigators say there is a relationship between Crawford and Harris, but they are not revealing details at this time.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says Crawford is currently at-large, and they're not sure where he may be headed. Cuyahoga Falls police and the Summit County Sheriff's Office have been notified.
