OKC Police investigating deadly hit and run
OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma City police are investigating the death of a man who was killed while walking along a metro street.
It happened Saturday around 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of Lyrewood Lane and Edenbrough Drive.
Police said a man walking along Lyrewood Lane was hit and killed by someone driving a car.
Ranee McBride said the hit and run happened right in front of her Lyrewood Lane home.
“A gentleman was killed and, you know, you know, I feel sorry for his family, you know, I wish I knew who he was so I could send out my prayers to them,” she said.
She said she walked out of her home to see the man’s body lying next to the curb.
“I pray for him, you know? I pray for his family because it’s not, you know, the best thing to see and I just hated to have kids see it too.”
McBride said no one in the neighborhood knew the man.
She said the stretch of Lyrewood Lane in front of her home is dangerous because no one obeys the 30 mile per hour speed limit and there is a section of the road with no sidewalks.
She said the person who hit the man may not have even realized what they did but she hopes police catch up with them.
“I hope that they come forward and, you know, let the police, you know, talk to them,” McBride said.
So far, police have not released the victim’s name, age nor a description of the vehicle that hit him.
