The Oklahoma Highway Patrol needs help solving a fatal hit and run accident that happened seven years ago. They're hoping someone is now willing to come forward with the truth. News On 6 crime reporter Lori Fullbright reports the accident happened in 2000.
Richard Warren, II, was walking on I-244 just east of the Tisdale Expressway on March 24, 2000 around five in the morning.
"He was struck by a vehicle going eastbound. That propelled him into the westbound lanes where he was struck again by another vehicle,â€ said Tulsa Police officer Leland Ashley.
Witnesses say neither driver stopped to help Warren or even call for help. The first vehicle that hit him could be a dark colored Chevy, possibly a Caprice. There was no description of the second vehicle, so now troopers are counting on the human element.
"We hope somebody talked about this. It's been a long time, maybe they wanted to get it off their conscience,â€ said Tulsa Police officer Leland Ashley.
Investigators want to solve this case to give some answers to the family of Richard Warren.
Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers at 596-COPS. The calls are completely anonymous. If your tip leads to an arrest, you'll be given a cash reward through a secret code system.
