OKC police release video related to fatal bicycle collision
Oklahoma City police on Friday released surveillance video of a vehicle thought to have been involved in the death of a local chef.
About 2:40 a.m. Thursday, Chad Ryan Epley, 31, was riding a bicycle west on NW 16, near Classen Boulevard. Epley was struck by a vehicle traveling south on Classen Boulevard that then left the scene, police said. Investigators determined that Epley's bicycle was dragged to NW 6 and Western Avenue.
In the video released Friday, a vehicle can be seen driving from the collision, with sparks flying from the bicycle being dragged. Police said the vehicle appears to be a black sedan.
Epley, who was not wearing a helmet, was taken to OU Medical Center, where he later died from his injuries. He was the co-executive chef at Vast, a restaurant located at the top of the Devon Tower.
Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300 or leave a tip online at www.okccrimetips.com.
