SHAWNEE, Okla. – Authorities questioned the person of interest in a fatal hit-and-run that left one toddler dead, but so far, no arrests have been made.

Wednesday night officials say Marland Tramble was walking to the store while pushing his 3-year-old son, Aun’dreis, in a stroller when they were both hit by a car.

Aun’dreis died from his injuries and Marland was raced to the hospital with broken bones.

Witnesses claim to have seen a white Mazda with dark tinted windows race away from the scene.

Shortly after the incident, authorities named Mark Dwayne Robbins as a person of interest, and he later turned himself into authorities.

After Robbins was interviewed, he was not arrested, according to the Shawnee News-Star.

“He is still considered a person of interest,” Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Paul Timmons said, adding, there “may be other people involved.”

Authorities have located the vehicle they believe was involved in the hit-and-run.

It is being processed for evidence.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 1-866-OHP-TIPS (1-866-647-8477) or the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office.

A GoFundMe account has been set up in an effort to assist the family.
