The family members of an Oklahoma man are trying to find answers to their many questions, while Oklahoma authorities are searching for the hit-and-run driver who killed their loved one. Although the accident may not be seen as a homicide yet, the driver of the vehicle may have to face other criminal charges. Leaving an accident scene involving injury or death is considered a felony in Oklahoma. Apart from the possible criminal charges, the family may choose to file a wrongful death claim.
