OKLAHOMA CITY - The family of a metro man who was killed by a car while riding his motorized scooter is speaking out. It happened around 8 p.m. on November 21 near Grand and Penn.
"He was crossing the street just fine, and the car just came from nowhere,” Sciria Robinson told News 4.
Robinson said her uncle, 56-year-old Roy Mccrary, died several hours after he was hit by the car while on his motorized scooter.
"Looking at his injury, my uncle's leg was wide open. I mean, it was like filet in a fish. So, we knew, I knew that he couldn't come back from that,” Robinson said. "As I went back and I surveyed the area myself, there were no skid marks, nothing.”
Robinson was told the driver initially left the scene but then returned and cooperated with officers.
"It is hard to talk about, and what's the hardest is knowing that the driver will never be held responsible and that's what hurts,” Robinson said.
Witnesses told police the driver had a green light when he hit Mccrary.
"It hurts. Right now, my aunt is living with me because we know that she won't be able to maintain that apartment on a fixed income,” Robinson said.
Robinson said it’s been a rough week for their family, trying to make sense of the heartbreaking tragedy.
"Everybody loved him. He was so full of jokes and joy,” she said. "I brought my family from Ohio to have a better life, and he gets killed two years later and nobody has to face any consequences for it. It just hurts. It hurts.”
According to police, the driver, Carlos Davila, was arrested for drug possession charges and driving on a suspended license.
It will be up to the district attorney to make the final decision regarding whether or not Davila will face charges for the crash.
