TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa police say a person driving a pickup truck drove onto a downtown sidewalk and intentionally ran over three homeless people, killing one man and injuring a woman before driving away.

Tulsa Police Sgt. Stephen Florea told the Tulsa World the three people were sleeping underneath the Interstate 244 bridge early Monday when the truck jumped over the curb, drove down the sidewalk and struck them.

Florea says a 46-year-old man was taken to a Tulsa hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A 49-year-old woman was injured, and a third person was grazed by the truck.

Florea said the truck was described as a small, 1980s or 1990s model pickup driven by a white man in his 40s wearing a baseball cap.
