Troopers looking for driver behind deadly hit-and-run crash
MCALESTER, Okla. – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is looking for the driver involved in a deadly hit-and-run.
Investigators say 34-year-old Curtis Johnson was walking along the edge of the pavement along the US 69 service road on Tuesday evening near McAlester when he was hit by a car.
Sadly, he died from his injuries at the scene.
Officials say a white, delivery-style van did not stop after hitting Johnson, but continued along the service road.
The driver of the van pulled behind a motel momentarily before getting onto the highway.
Johnson was discovered by an off-duty trooper.
OHP is asking anyone who was in the area on Nov. 20 between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. and saw something to come forward with that information.
