The Okeechobee City Police Department Needs Your Help:
On early Sunday morning 2/6/2011 at about 1:48am, the Okeechobee Police Department was dispatched to a hit and run crash in the 900 block of SR 70 west. OPD Officers, and a Traffic Homicide Investigator (THI) learned the following from witnesses:
Two unknown vehicles were west bound on SR-70 and passed NW 9th Avenue. The first vehicle was a dark colored mini-van. The mini-van struck a Hispanic male who was crossing the roadway on foot. The mini-van left the scene.
The second vehicle was a small dark colored passenger car Dodge Neon (2001-2005) which struck the same Hispanic male secondly and also fled the scene.
Both vehicles were reported as being in their late 1990's to early 2000's models.
