A mother speaks out after her son was struck by a car in northwest Oklahoma City and died. She and police are now asking for the public's help in tracking down the driver.

"You just shouldn't leave a child to die like that," said Sheryl Bacon. "You shouldn't leave anyone out there to die like that."

The night of October 12th, police say 36-year-old Scott Bacon was crossing the street at Northwest Expressway and Council when he was hit by a vehicle.

"This is such a busy, busy intersection and even at 7:45 at night, there are cars coming and going both directions in all areas," Bacon said.

Police are now asking for any witnesses to come forward to help track down the driver responsible Bacon says she hopes someone may have seen what happened.

"Someone saw something," Bacon said. "Someone had to hear something, someone had to see a car speeding away."

Bacon says Scott was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic, which created multiple challenges in his life. She says he was always loving and never shied away from helping others.

"He never met a stranger;" said Bacon. "He would give the brand-new shoes off of his feet for someone if they asked him for it."

Bacon says Scott would walk around this area frequently and never imagined anything like this happening. She hopes by catching this suspect, it could possibly save another life.

"I do not want this to happen to any other family out there," said Bacon. "It is just horrific."

As of now, there is no description of the suspect vehicle. If you have any other information on this incident, you're asked to call police.
