LOGAN COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is investigating after a man’s body was found on the side of the road in Logan County.
It happened Friday morning on Broadway near Charter Oak Road.
Troopers say it appears he was hit by a car, but more questions remain.
The stretch of roadway is typically pretty quiet but Friday morning, it was a much different scene.
“It’s not really highly-traveled out here that early in the morning,” said Trooper Eric Foster, with Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Troopers got the call around 7:30 a.m. Friday by someone reporting a body lying on the side of the road.
They say it appears a driver hit the victim, now identified as 26-year-old Christopher Dunlap, while traveling in the area around 7:30 a.m.
“That doesn’t necessarily mean that someone knew that they struck him but that’s why we do that investigation, trying to determine who, what, where, why – all of those different things,” Foster said.
Troopers say when they arrived on scene, the man had already died, lying in the grass along the side of the road.
“That’s just where he came to rest and we’re just trying to determine where it all started,” said Foster.
Their homicide unit mapped the scene from the air and the ground.
As of 6 p.m. Friday, OHP says 23-year-old Sabrina Dunlap might have been involved driving a 2011 Chevrolet HHR.
As to how she is involved and what exactly happened, officials are still investigating.
