DELAWARE, OK -- A third person has died after a traffic accident last month in Nowata County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 70-year-old Alfred Hobbs of South Coffeyville died Sunday evening at a Bartlesville hospital.

A mother and son from Caney, Kansas, were killed in the May 9 accident on U.S. Highway 169 near Delaware.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is still looking for a third vehicle which left the scene of the accident.

"It was just an unnecessary accident his foolishness caused. And he needs to know that he needs to pay for that," said Hobbs' wife, Anna Marie.

That vehicle is described as a 1955 to 1957 black Chevy Bel Aire. The car reportedly has many chrome features.
