Man lying on Oklahoma highway hit by truck, killed


A man was hit and killed Sunday morning while he was lying in the middle of an Oklahoma highway.

William Gunter Jr., 55, was lying in the northbound lane of State Highway 1 in Ravia around 4:45 a.m. Sunday, Oklahoma Highway Patrol told KOCO.

The unidentified driver of a 2000 Dodge Ram pickup truck hit Gunter, killing him, officials said.

The driver was uninjured.

It’s unclear why Gunter was lying in the road and a spokesperson for the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety did not immediately return a request for comment.
