Tulsa Police believe a man found dead on East 31st Street South at 124th East Avenue Sunday evening was hit by three vehicles. 

Officers say the man wearing dark clothing was crossing the street when he was struck by a westbound SUV at 8 p.m.  The SUV initially stopped, but then left.  It's described as a dark colored Chevrolet SUV, possibly a Tahoe according to a police news release. 

Police said the victim, who was still lying in the street, was hit by a second smaller vehicle, which dragged the body for about 50 feet before driving away. 

Investigators say a third vehicle also hit the body, but did not stop. 

Tulsa Police believe the drivers of the second and third vehicles may have not been aware they hit the victim. 

Investigators need to identify the victim, which describe as a Hispanic male in his early to late 20s, 5'06" to 5'07" tall and weighing about 150 pounds.  They also want to talk to the three drivers. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or text 918TIP to "Crimes."
