Man hit, killed by vehicle in Bryan County

BENNINGTON, Okla. (AP) - Bryan County authorities are investigating the death of a man who was hit and killed on a county road near Bennington.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 20-year-old Joshua Lynn Williams was killed about 4:30 Sunday morning when he was hit by an unknown vehicle.

Troopers say it appears Williams was sitting or standing in the road when he was hit and authorities are still looking for the vehicle and the driver.

    It is so crazy how so many people can make comments about things they know nothing about. I see this family go to this website everyday and read what you people write. I have watched them cry and get upset over comments that people leave. If you don't have the respect for this family then don't even waste your time commenting. It hurts Josh's family more everyday when they read what you write. They are good people and just want some closure. If it were one of your family members you would want the same. Think about it like this...If it were your son, brother, or dad who was killed would you want to read some of the comments below? So everytime you go to comment think about his mother, brothers, sister, and children who have access to this same website and think twice about what you type. Some of these comments are just stupid while others are harmful. PLEASE HAVE SOME RESPECT!!!!!!!!!

    I am sorry family for your lost, I know you need closure but I feel like we need to hold people responsible that would buy beer for yours and others minor children. You have been in our thoughts and prayers as will the little girls with no daddy. Isnt it amazing how God works I'm sure at the time his first baby was born it did not seem ideal to you but God had a plan to have someone to carry on Josh's memory, may he bless these two beautiful babies.

    What do you mean who cares what was being done when this happened. Do you think they would be up at 3 or 4 in the morning doing something good! If they had not been drinking this would have never happened or at least not at this time of day and in this way. i am sure the person who did this left him there and did not call the police because they were scared they would be arrested for drunk driving therefore if he had not been drinking maybe he would have called for some help for this poor boy. IT MATTERS WHAT THEY WERE DOING!!!!! WAKE UP AND ARREST THE PERSON WHO BOUGHT THE BEER!

    Who cares what was being done while this happen!!! This family just needs closer. No matter how it happend a young life was taken!!!!!

    I agree owner you must be hitting a nerve. Sounds like people know stuff they are not telling and if you people don't think drinking was involved what rock did you climb out from under. The people who were living in the house should feel so bad that they had a party and provided beer that lead to the death of a young boy. I agree kids in a small town drink but that does not make it ok it is illegal!!!!! Wake up parents who justify that by saying we live in a small town and kids this age do this sort of thing. You get from your kids what you expect....

    Please I am begging for information from anyone. I am Josh's mother, what my family and I are going through right now is a horrible experience that I hope none of you have to go through. Josh left behind a 3 yr old daughter and another that was born after his death that will never know her Daddy except through the things from her family. If you have an conscience at all, PLEASE come forward with any information that will help put this person away for life. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol and OSBI are doing a fabulous job, please don't put them down, they are doing their jobs. In a case like this there is some information that has to come from the public to put this person away for life. Call 580-924-2601, ask to speak to Ronnie Hampton and/or Johnny Christian. Thank you from the family of Joshua L. W illiams

    To spell checker: Let me guess you are one of these so called law enforcements wife, so you have to come on here and try to defend them by, trying to put others down, for 3 missed spelled words. BRILLANT! Don’t get your panties in a knot, just because the law enforcement is hated around here!

    if everyone is so much better at solving crimes why dont yall apply to a law enforcement agency so you can give it a try it doesnt work like on csi. you dont have a script to tell you who killed who. the point is this is a tragedy no matter what a young man lost his life. and everybody else wants to point fingers let the police do thier job. and fyi noone employed under the sheriff can campaign for any candidate. anyone who has info should report it its your duty as a citizen. bryan county does not employ a psychic so if they arent told they dont know.
