Lawton, Okla. - A pedestrian was struck and killed by a pickup Monday night. The accident happened just south of SW 27th and H Avenue around 9:30. The pedestrian died at the hospital.
Police say it's possible the victim stumbled and fell off the curb. They also tell us the driver thought he'd just hit a pot hole, not a person, and continued to drive for a short time.
He realized something was wrong when other cars began flashing their headlights at him. That's when he turned around and went back to the scene.
