A child was listed in critical condition following an incident involving a vehicle, Duncan Police Detective William Fitzhugh said Friday.
The Duncan Police Department received a call at 6:26 p.m. Thursday about an accident involving a child at the Forest Hills Addition and Second Street.
“A car was traveling westbound toward Forest Hills,” Fitzhugh said. “There were some children heading eastbound, walking toward oncoming traffic. And there was a little boy on a bike.”
Fitzhugh said some details cannot be released because the child is a minor and because the incident is still under investigation. Fitzhugh and Sgt. Steve Biffle are overseeing the investigation.
“The investigation is to determine who’s at fault,” Fitzhugh said.
He has already interviewed the driver. Because the accident did involve an injury, the toxicology of the driver was taken and sent to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
“It could take a couple of weeks,” Fitzhugh said about the test results.

Monkeypox must be a joke from above
It’s been over 10 years since I moved out of sporting writing and began writing a column for the editorial page. Every so often this year, I’m rerunning a piece from the first year of the transition. This column first appeared in The Duncan Banner in June 2003.
A special day for memories
Father’s Day is a special occasion in my life. Thoughts of my dad surface easily. And lessons he taught seem to be entrenched in the lives of our three sons even though he died before their births.
