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,” 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,” 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.
