iStock(MOORE, Okla.) — Six high-school students were struck by a car in Moore, Oklahoma, Monday afternoon, leaving one dead and three in critical condition, according to police.

The suspect, a male adult driving a red pickup truck, did not stop after the crash, according to a Moore police spokesman. The driver, who is now in custody, hit multiple vehicles before and after striking the students.

Police took blood to determine if the suspect was intoxicated and are still waiting for those results.

At this time there is no known motive, police said.

“We got special people that live and go to school here in Moore,” Dustin Horstkoetter, a director with the school district, said Monday at a press conference. “And to see kids and coaches giving first aid and helping their classmates and their students … we live a good community.”
