Tulsa police are still investigating a hit and run that left one man dead.

Police said on Sunday at 8:00 p.m. officers were assigned to 12400 E. 31st Street to investigate a possible fatality collision.

When officers arrived, they found a man’s body lying in the street. Investigators believe the man was trying to cross E. 31st Street at about 124th E. Avenue when he was hit by a vehicle traveling westbound. The SUV initially stopped, but then drove away.

The SUV is described as a dark colored Chevrolet, possibly a Tahoe. The victim, whose body was still in the street, was hit a second time by a smaller vehicle. The second vehicle drug the victim another 50 ft. before the body was dislodged from the vehicle. The second vehicle did not stop. Investigators have information that the victim was then hit by a third vehicle that did not stop. There is no description of the third vehicle. It is possible that the second or third vehicle was not aware that they had hit the victim.

“If somebody did see a car in that area, maybe if seeing a neighbor come home with some damage to an SUV just give us that information. We’re really just reaching out trying to get information from citizen that may have seen anything,” said Officer Jillian Roberson with the Tulsa Police Department. 

There was no identification on the victim and police are working to identify him.

“We’re still trying to actually gather information on his identity, so we’re really just reaching out to ask if anybody hasn't spoken to their loved one or friend in a while,” she said. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or text TIP918 to CRIMES (274637).
