CRIME STOPPERS ALERT: 91-year-old Olin Lewis killed while riding motorcycle on Tulsa highway

TULSA - It's not the way a 91-year-old life is supposed to end.

Olin Lewis was still living his life to the fullest, out for a joyride on his motorcycle on a Saturday afternoon in March of 2010, until tragedy struck.

"All of a sudden they heard the collision and saw him sliding on the ground," said Jill Roberson of the Tulsa Police Department.

Olin was hit hard from behind, after stopping in backed-up traffic in a construction zone on Highway 169 near Admiral.

His life came to an end, on the highway.

"This was a 91-year-old man. He was still very healthy and living his life," said Roberson.

Whoever hit Olin that day was somehow able to get away, weaving in and out of all that traffic, without ever being caught.

"I know they had a reason to run and I figure they were afraid," said Olin's friend, LaJuana Moore.

"We do have individuals that do get scared and then end up calling in later and say, 'Oh my gosh I think that was me that hit the person or hit that vehicle,'" said Roberson.

But in this case, the call never came.

And three years later the hunt goes on for the hit and run driver. It's left Olin's friends to wonder.

"I don't know if they didn't have a driver's license or insurance or if it was a person who wasn't in the country legally, I don't know," speculated Moore.

Whatever the case, Olin's friends want the driver to face justice, and hope they're already living with the guilt.

"I know you live with this for the rest of your life," said Moore.

The vehicle that hit Olin was possibly a white Isuzu pickup.
