The driver of the car that struck Harrison fled the scene. Authorities are still searching for the suspect and anyone involved in the drag race.

Harrison was a vice principal at New Brunswick High School. He was a member of Ohio State’s football team from 1989-1990.

“He always showed tremendous pride in Ohio State,” said New Brunswick High School Athletic Director Craig Lowery. “He always would talk about playing in the horseshoe (the school’s stadium), and how he wanted to have a connection and pipeline to Ohio State.”
