Trucker Wanted for Questioning After Fatal Hit and Run in Oklahoma

Sequoyah County, OK – Oklahoma authorities are searching for a trucker believed to be involved in a fatal hit and run last Saturday.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP), the incident occurred last Saturday, July 18 at approximately 7:00 p.m.




 

Investigators say a white semi-truck pulling a white trailer was operating along eastbound Interstate 40, about 3.7 miles north of Moffett, when it struck a man identified as Robert Rabe.

OHP said Rabe was driving a 1977 Chevrolet truck eastbound and had pulled to the shoulder to change a flat tire before being fatally struck.

Investigators indicated there is likely damage to the right front of the tractor and/or the right side of the trailer.

The big rig continued traveling east into Arkansas on I-40.




 

It is unclear if the trucker was aware he struck a person.

OHP released a photo of the big rig (above) and is asking for anyone with information to call the NE Region Communications Center at (918) 627-0440.
