Investigators are still searching for a pickup truck that was used in a hit-and-run that killed one person and injured another on October 21 in Delaware County, Oklahoma. The truck is going to be used as evidence in the case since the driver has already been taken into custody, according to multiple news reports.
The suspect in the case is a 40-year-old man who is now facing second-degree murder charges. He is also facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon. The suspect has been accused of hitting two people with his pickup truck, a 2007 Dodge Ram. One of the people he hit with the truck was killed and the other suffered serious injuries.
The victim who was killed in the accident was identified as a 44-year-old man. The surviving victim was identified as a 21-year-old female. She was transported to a local hospital with injuries that were described as non-life threatening.
According to investigators, the two victims of the accident were involved in an argument that led to them being run over. The incident occurred on Oct. 21 on Red Dirt Bar in Colcord. The suspect fled the scene in the pickup truck, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations. The suspect has since been detained but the truck is still missing.
Facing aggravated assault, assault with a deadly weapon and murder charges can be very daunting. An experienced criminal defense attorney in Norman can help you understand the law, the legal process and what you should expect with your case.
