MOORE, Okla. – Authorities say a man pedaling an adult-sized tricycle was struck and killed in an apparent hit-and-run in Moore early Friday.
Moore Police Department spokesman Jeremy Lewis says the man’s tricycle had reflectors and lights on when the collision occurred on S.W. 19th St. Lewis tells The Norman Transcript that a witness reported seeing a white truck hit the man.
“The witness was traveling westbound, noticed the tricycle before he was hit and then saw him get hit,” Jeremy Lewis, with the Moore Police Department, said.
Lewis says that according to the witness, the truck didn’t stop and continued on to I-35.
“A white truck, not sure if it was a full size truck or a smaller truck, struck the bicyclist and continued eastbound,” Lewis said.
The victim has been identified as 51-year-old Charles Shatswell.
People who work in the area say Shatswell rode his tricycle around Moore often.
Lewis says authorities believe surveillance video could aid in the investigation.
