More on the Marlow man hit and killed Tuesday morning

MARLOW, Okla_More than 12 hours after he was hit while walking down Highway 81 in Stephens County, no one is sure why Daniel Sanchez was there in the first place.

It was 2:45 Tuesday morning when authorities say the 28 year old from Marlow was hit just south of the city limits. The driver said she'd been distracted and when she saw him, it was too late.

Friends of Daniel Sanchez said he was probably on his way to see his grandmother Tuesday morning, who lives near the scene of the accident just south of Blackburn Road.

The driver of the car that struck Sanchez admitted to being distracted by something in her car, she looked down and when she looked back up, it was too late.

Friends of Sanchez said he loved his family and would do anything for them, walked almost everywhere unless somebody gave him a ride and he worked in the sound booth at Eternal Life Church in Marlow.

Sanchez is survived by his grandmother, his wife and a 2 year old son.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the accident is still under investigation.

We put in multiple calls today to authorities, including the OHP and the sheriff, to see whether there was any new information on Sanchez's death.

We have not heard back from them.
