OKLAHOMA CITY -

Police have released the name of a man who was hit and killed in a hit-and-run crash at a liquor store parking lot near N.W. 10th Street and Western Avenue in Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

Police and witnesses say Lee Michael Day, 38, was sitting along an exterior wall of the liquor store right before a car hit him and pinned him against the wall. Witnesses say Day then rolled into nearby standing water as he desperately clinging to life.

Witnesses are calling it a dramatic scene. It played out in front of a parking lot full of people.

"Anytime you see blood and guts … it's not fun," witness Hope Devine said. "I know that his leg is severely broken. It was hanging on by ligaments."

Fatality crash investigators from Oklahoma City police spent much of Tuesday afternoon interviewing witnesses and collecting evidence. Police say there is no reason to believe the crash was not an accident, but what the suspects did after the crash was no accident.

"They both did get out of the car, went over and looked at the victim and then got back in their car and left," Lt. Roger Bratcher of Oklahoma City police said.

Neighbors living across the street saw the aftermath of the crash and were left surprised at what the suspects are accused of doing.

"They had to be either drunk or something to make them not think clear," neighbor Freda Helguera said. " … then get out and look at them and drive off."

Police say one man and one woman were in the car that struck the victim. They are still searching for them.

Officers say the suspects' vehicle is a white late 1980's four-door Plymouth or Dodge with Oklahoma tag 120DPM. If you see the car, call police.
