TULSA, Okla. – An investigation is underway in Tulsa after a hit-and-run accident in front of a popular park claimed the life of a 5-year-old boy.
According to police, the boy and his mom were riding a Lime electric scooter in front of the Gathering Place around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Police say the two were hit while riding the scooter southbound in the outside northbound lanes of the road.
The boy was taken to the hospital where he later died. Tulsa police say the mother’s injuries did not appear to require hospitalization.
Officials say they found the suspect’s vehicle at an apartment complex and that it was missing the front bumper, the front grill and other parts, all of which were later found near the scene.
Police say their person of interest, Renier S. Davison, turned himself in on Wednesday and was booked into jail for leaving the scene of an injury accident, causing an accident without a driver’s license and driving while under suspension.
