Truck, Driver Allegedly In Hit And Run Located

The Murray County Sheriff’s Office and Oklahoma Highway Patrol located a semi truck and driver allegedly involved in a fatal hit and run on November 17, officials said.

Around 8:49 p.m. on that date, emergency personal responded to a pedestrian who had been hit and was in the roadway on S.H. 7, just west of Kirby-Graves Road, west of Sulphur. Law enforcement officers at the scene found a vehicle part from the accident and Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Jason Yingling located a Freightliner emblem in a cement drainage culvert near the scene, according to lawmen.

On November 18, Murray County Sheriff Darrin Rogers, Undersheriff Jay Mc-Clure, and Deputy Kyle Duncan began watching surveillance video from local businesses in an attempt to identify a semi truck that may have been involved in the fatal accident, officials said.

Lawmen said they noticed a truck that traveled through Sulphur in the correct time frame, said sheriff Rogers. “The semi appeared to be a Day Cab pulling a pneumatic sand trailer,” he said in a release. “Lawmen then traveled to Davis and watched surveillance from local businesses and noticed the same truck travel through Davis in the correct time frame.”
