A 26-year-old woman killed on Cleveland's east side during an unusual incident has been identified.

Cashmere Jackson, 26, of Cleveland, was killed in the area of East 55th Street and Woodland Avenue around 4:50 p.m. Wednesday. Cleveland Police are still trying to piece together the bizarre incident, after a lot of drama turned deadly during rush hour at the busy intersection. 

According to police, there was an altercation between women in the parking lot of the Shell Gas Station at 2625 East 55th Street. During the fight, Sandie C. Sanderson, 23, was driving a Pontiac Grand Am and gently rear-ended a Chevrolet Impala, driven by Shatai N. Jefferson, 26.

Police say Jackson was the passenger of the Impala, and when she got out of the car, Sanderson drove toward her. Jackson then jumped onto the hood, and Sanderson drove out of the parking lot onto East 55th, heading southbound with Jackson still on top. 

Eventually, police say Sanderson's Pontiac veered across the double yellow line and Jackson fell off the hood. The Pontiac then collided head-on with another Chevrolet Impala, driven by a 68-year-old male, who was stopped in the left turn lane.

Police say Jackson then rolled onto East 55th and was run over by a Honda Accord, driven by a 62-year-old male, who was traveling northbound.

When officers responded to the area, they found Jackson in the street. Police say she sustained serious injuries and was transported to MetroHealth Medical Center, where she died.

"The girl took off in the car with the girl still on the hood. She hit another car. Girl rolled off and went under the car and is deceased," said Sgt. Steve Loomis. 

Both male drivers who became involved were not injured.

Sanderson was placed under arrest and charged with aggravated vehicular homicide. 

The investigation continues.
